Saturday February 25, 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
The Board of Directors of the Centro Español of Tampa invite you to our historic cemetery to see the recent progress we’ve made in improving its appearance and to help us honor the past by continuing the important work of sustaining this special “memory palace”.
We will be collecting trash, weeding pathways and gravesites, refurbishing tombstones, and making minor repairs. There will be a special presentation by an expert in headstone restoration and repair. After the presentation, some volunteers will have the opportunity to help restore some of the many headstones in need using the techniques demonstrated. Light breakfast and lunch fare and beverages will be served while supplies last.
The cemetery address is 2504 E. 21st Avenue. Carpooling is recommended. If you’re able, please consider bringing hand tools (rakes, hoes, gloves, etc.) and a folding chair. Please let us know that you will be joining us either via Eventbrite Event or Facebook Event Page. If you have any questions, feel free to ask via email or give us a call at: (813)-870-0559.
We look forward to seeing you there!
