A call for Flowers


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

This Saturday the project to place at least one flower on the estimated 25,000 graves in Carbon County begins in earnest as groups of people will roll up to various cemeteries and begin the work.

The project, known as No Graves Unadorned, has developed legs of its own throughout the community. It's estimated that as many as 800 people have been involved in the making of the plastic flowers for graves over the last month.

Presently the flowers that have come in (over 11,000 so far) are stored at the Sun Advocate office.

In addition volunteers, in groups and as individuals have signed up to help in the placement of the flowers over the next few days culminating on Memorial Day, at which point all graves in the county should have at least one flower on them.

But that doesn't mean the project doesn't need more help. While materials for thousands of flowers are still out, filling the manpower needs to actually put the flowers on graves goes on. The biggest need appears to be at the Price Cemetery where there are thousands upon thousands of graves to be attended to.

It also means that flowers that have been under construction by groups throughout the county need to be brought into the Sun Advocate office by Friday so that there are enough to go around.

To keep track of the numbers of flowers brought in, each issue of the Sun Advocate has a Flower Vine printed in the far right column of the front page showing how many flowers have come in.

Anyone wishing to donate their time to make flowers or to place them on graves the week of May 22-31 can contact Shayla Winder at 637-0732.
