Community support grows for 'No Grave Unadorned'

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Carbon-Emery community is putting hands to work to make sure that every grave in the two-county area will be decorated for Memorial Day.

Support for the flower project has come from schools at all grade levels, the college, and civic-minded individuals and groups.

The latest count, estimated at 15,000, measures the number of flowers that have been delivered to the Sun Advocate office. Material for thousands more have been distributed.

On Monday, for example, the USU Eastern Cosmetology Department picked up material for 4,000 additional flowers, which students will fashion by hand.

The "No Grave Unadorned" project grew from an idea by Sun Advocate publisher Richard Shaw, who was looking for a way to demonstrate the community's respect for those who fought and died in wars and those who worked and struggled to build a community.

This year, the drive has grown to include Emery County, an effort that is being spearheaded by the staff of the Emery County Progress.

In addition to making the flowers, the newspapers are also looking for volunteers to help place them on graves.
