The city of Des Moines requested volunteers to participate in stone raising in the veterans’ section of Laurel Hill Cemetery November 5, 2016. This was the initial work session of a project that will resume next spring. Laurel Hill cemetery borders the Iowa State fairgrounds on the southeast corner. The weather was good and about thirty of us got the project started. Those SAR members that have volunteered for other Des Moines cemetery projects will probably get an invite by email to help next spring. An announcement will be in the Register also.
