KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.,--Saturday morning the Klamath Falls community came together at Eternal Hills Memorial Gardens to clean up. For years, many people who have loved ones buried at Eternal Hills Memorial Park have been frustrated at the lack of upkeep. The grass is dead, graves are sinking and tall weeds surround the graves.
Volunteers came out with trash bags, lawn mowers and weed whackers to fix the problem themselves. Leslie Click is among the volunteers that should up around 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
"It's something that needs to be done and it's a matter of respect and the preservation of dignity and respect for the families and the people that are lying here," says Click.
The clean-up was organized through a Facebook group designed to share updates about the cemetery and host clean up efforts.
"More people need to come out and help. It's a great cause and it feels good," says Click.
