Elmerton Cemetery Volunteer Signup 

  Unite as Americans on a righteous and long overdue cause. Help us restore Elmerton Cemetery in Hampton to a respectful state. Black education pioneer Mary Peake rests at Elmerton along with many Africans who were emancipated during our Civil War. 

 

  The Barrette-Peake Heritage Foundation maintains the cemetery and relies on volunteers.  Covid has sidelined many who have contributed in the past and there is a great need for new volunteers. 

 

  This project includes trash pickup and lawn maintenance. Our events will be on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 2-4 pm. 

 

  We made a pact devoting ourselves to this cause and hope many will join us. Work has begun on a grant to care for Elmerton Cemetery perpetually and we hope to produce a monument to Mary Peake someday.

 

 Sincerely, 

 Geri Holden
