This past Thursday Gravesite Guardians officially opened its doors to Chapel Hill and surrounding communities showcasing its unique service by leading a community service project at the local Sparrows Cemetery. The Gravesite Guardian crew, EV staff and board members, and Sparrow family and friends came together on the beautiful fall afternoon with a common goal: to Spruce up Sparrow Cemetery.

Half of the GG crew worked on 2 headstones while the other pair went to work on the landscaping project of mulching the shady area towards the front of the cemetery. Employing our crew’s unique set of skills we finished both stones within 2 hours and the mulching wrapped up an hour later. It was clear by the end that a little bit of mulch and elbow grease goes a long way.
