Clean-up day for Tryon cemetery to take place Saturday

The Tryon Cemetery Commission, in partnership with the Tryon Parks Committee, has scheduled a cemetery clean-up day from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. 

Volunteers are asked to bring rakes, clippers, hand saws, heavy-duty garbage bags and gloves for the work day. 

The Tryon Historic Cemetery is located at 425 Markham Road across from the Garrison Chapel Baptist Church.  While working with cemetery commission members, volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the history of the cemetery and plans for future improvements.
