Service Day Preview: Little Africa Cemetery


Fire science teacher Dutch Parks, English teacher Carol Fullington and guidance counselor Brandi Kerley are introducing a new service project for Service Day this year. They will be taking students to Little Africa cemetery.

Little Africa is a cemetery in Chambersburg, Indiana. The tasks they are going to complete on Service Day will include cleaning the paths in the cemetery and picking up trash in Little Africa as well as in Cox’s Woods in Paoli.

“I’m excited because I’ve never been there, and I’ve heard lots about it. Historically, I think it’s important to preserve it,” said Fullington.

In past years, they have just gone to Cox’s woods, but they want to restore and clean up the cemetery to preserve its history.
