Mrs. Procell & Students Clean Up Coates Bluff Trails

Mrs. Procell and some of her students picked up trash along the Coates Bluff trail this weekend by one of the newly installed trash nets near the Monte Carlo Bridge. Students also explored a few of the graves in the neglected Hopewell Cemetery off of the trail. Students just studied WWI and stumbled upon this grave of Henry Milton, an African-American WWI veteran who served in a segregated engineering corps.

There will be a larger community-wide clean-up effort on Saturday, March 4th, from 9:00-12:00.  Please contact Mrs. Procell at for more information.
