On Thursday, I wrote about making a presentation to the Perry Township Trustees at their October meeting regarding the disgraceful conditions found at the Walnut Creek Cemetery. At that meeting, the presiding trustee said he would contact the probation office and make arrangements for community service workers to do the cleanup work.
The meeting was on Monday, October 14, and today, Friday the 18th the work was done - fast MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! (The photos here can be compared to the photos in my blog of Thursday - big difference.)
The workers showed up at 9 AM and were provided with a weedeater, trash bags, a broom, and rakes. The old section of the cemetery was in the worst shape and the cleaning began. When I showed up at the scene about 10:30 AM, the trash can had been emptied, and several trash bags had been filled. I spoke to the workers' supervisor and then I walked around the old section to view the changes.
The squeaky wheel does get the grease! (Fortunately, I was not the only one to complain.)
