On Sept. 24, volunteers including Don Sparks, Kelly Johnson, Amanda Sam, Ali Boyle, Sam Boyle, Kevin Wiggs, Ann Dionne-Fenner, Vicki Doiron Fucarile, Justin Doucette, Ali Chartier, Charlie Pirillo, Ben Pitre and Austin Pitre spent the morning clearing grass away from veterans' markers at Forest Hill Cemetery in Fitchburg. The effort came about when Sparks and Dionne-Fenner were visiting her parents' grave and noticed the amount of grass that had grown over her father's marker. They saw other veterans' stones could use the same treatment. Three sections were finished that day.
