To honor this year’s National Day of Service and Remembrance, three organizations — Athens Area Habitat for Humanity, Thrivent Financial, and Friends of the St. James Baptist Church Cemetery — are teaming up with St. James Baptist on Saturday, September 14th, to clear and clean its historic church cemetery in preparation for an anticipated rehabilitation and mapping of the site.

Volunteers are asked to donate an hour of their time between 8:00 AM and 12 noon. Athens Area Habitat will provide tools, gloves, and refreshments.
