Mottsville cemetery cleanup is Saturday

Staff reports

Members of the Mottsville Cemetery board are organizing the annual cleanup of the historic cemetery on May 20.

Although the Mottsville Cemetery, with more than 400 burial plots, is sold out, those who own sites are asked to help with the annual project. Board member Aldo Biaggi said if enough people participate, the task should only take a few hours.

“The cleanup will consist of mostly raking leaves and picking up branches from the old locust trees,” he said. “We want people to bring their own tools, such as a rake and a shovel. People who have plots there should come and help. We do this every year.”

The Mottsville Cemetery is located on Old Foothill Road, off Mottsville Lane near Foothill Road. The cleanup begins at 9 a.m.
