Clearing and Cleaning Veterans’ Grave Markers with L.L. Bean @ Evergreen Cemetery
Nov 24 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Here at L.L. Bean, we do more than just sell great outdoor gear and clothing. We also try to be good neighbors and valued members of our community.

The flush-to-the-ground markers that signify veterans’ graves tend, over time, to get overgrown and obscured. Join us on the morning of November 24 at the Veterans Section of Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven. We will be clearing off the overgrowth and exposing the markers, so that these brave men and women can be recognized and remembered.

If you would like to come, please see details and register online at www.LLBean.com/newhaven, so that I may know who and how many are coming.
