HFBA’s Cemetery Clean-Up Project was established to ensure that every grave at Silver Lake Cemetery and Mount Richmond Cemetery is properly maintained. Volunteers rake leaves and clear debris in our cemeteries, so that every grave is maintained with respect.
The following groups have participated in the Cemetery Clean-Up Project (click the link for pictures).

At times, individual volunteers join a group at the cemetery to help clean. On May 16, 2006, Mr. Jack Goldwasser (pictured right) joined us, sharing his outdoors expertise with us.
In conjunction with a separate project, where researchers are painstakingly going through old written records and surveying our cemeteries, we are identifying unmarked graves in anticipation of establishing a marker on every grave through Leave Your Mark.
