Spencer Cares 2023 Cemetery Cleanup
This year’s Spencer Cares event will focus on community volunteers assisting in removing vegetation and overgrowth in the historic New Hope AME Zion Church Cemetery. The Cemetery dates back to the 1880s and is at the site of the original New Hope AME Zion Church, which relocated to Long Street in the 1920s. On Saturday March 25 at 8:30 a.m., Spencer Cares volunteers will assemble at Oakdale Baptist Church (200 Charles St) and walk to the nearby Cemetery. Together, volunteers and town staff will clear out the branches, small trees, and vegetation that has overgrown the cemetery until approximately 1 p.m. Find out more and sign up at spencernc.gov.
