I am looking for help from people in the Nashville area that would be willing to come out on Saturday the 18th of September to help clean up a very old cemetery. It has been overcome with weeds, growth and the floods didn't help. This cemetery is located right off Gower Road behind the Centenary United Methodist Church. Volunteers are needed desperately for this project to get this cemetery clean and looking decent. Many years ago, I would do this by myself, but I am unable to any longer. Need people that can bring mowers, weed eaters, rakes, gloves, and any other tools you think may be needed to help fix up a overgrown cemetery that has been neglected for several years. Please email me at for infomation and directions. I hope to get started at 8 AM. Anyone wanting to bring water, gatorade or any other items for others are encouraged to help in that way also. I am sure I can get the church to allow us to use their downstairs room to cool off, use the restroom and place drinks in their fridge.
Some pictures at the link of my facebook of the condition of the cemetery. One of the original founders o Nashville is buried here, Reverend William Gower who also is the man that donated land for Gower Elementery School on Old Hickory Blvd in Bellevue area. He was a infant when his father, and grandfather along with James Robertson founded Nashville. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
