Joseph Cemetery Receives Scouts Attention

Contributed photo
Joseph Plains Cemetery (established in 1919) recently received a long-overdue cleaning and landscaping by Boy Scouts Blaze, 17, and Tate, 15, Berdoy, Troop 1638 in Cottonwood, as part of their Eagle Scout projects. Multiple improvements included removing overgrowth, leveling sunken graves, addition of a gravel walkway and a directory book in a sheltered wooden box, new barbed wire fencing and corner posts, and a new metal entry sign. When the projects started, there were 13 graves; 11 with headstones and two unmarked. During the cleanup, three additional unmarked graves were located, for a new total of 16 graves. Pictured at the cemetery are (L-R) Blaze and Tate, Life Scouts, who reside on Joseph Plains and home school.
