2016 Colma Cemetery Cleanup
Colma Cemetery Clean-up
Saturday, May 21, 2016
10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.
The 2016 Colma Cemetery Clean-up is an event designated to celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Japantown in the Western Addition.
Often times we find ourselves too busy in our daily lives to honor our past and remember those who have passed on. The Japanese Cemetery in Colma is a unique cultural treasure that deserves our attention, our respect, OUR TIME. The place represents our history, our loved ones, friends and family. For many of us, it’s the place where our grandparents, great grandparents, parents, family and friends are laid to rest. For all of us, the loved ones that rest there represent our history.
The JCCCNC organizes this youth, family and community Clean-Up Day at the Japanese Colma Cemetery in Colma annually. It is typically held on the Saturday one week BEFORE Memorial Day Weekend.
Help clean the cemetery and honor our past and remember those who have passed on.
Light lunch, drinking water, garbage bags, tools, cleaning supplies, watering buckets, rags, and flowers will be provided. Please bring your own gloves. We area limited with the number of tools, so feel free to bring your own, but make sure to put your name on them.
Location: Japanese Cemetery, 1300 Hillside Blvd, Colma, CA.
