Last Saturday, City of Sonoma Public Works Department staff organized a Community Volunteer event at Mountain Cemetery targeting graffiti abatement. Over a dozen volunteers turned out on February 6th for the inaugural Mountain Cemetery volunteer workday.

The City would like to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You! to the volunteers that donated their time and energy to paint over graffiti and help with fuel reduction efforts by raking fallen leaves and debris.  Over ten cubic yards of organic material was gathered from under trees, off burial plots and from walkways.

Those interested in volunteering to help maintain Sonoma’s Mountain Cemetery can sign up on the City’s Mountain Cemetery page. Prospective volunteers will be contacted with future opportunities.
