Facebook Post Leads Residents to Rally to Clean Up a Titusville, Florida Cemetery

The LaGrange Cemetery in Titusvillle, Florida was best described as being “in shambles.” John Petrik took to Facebook on Friday morning, where he explained in a community group what he discovered at the cemetery. By Monday morning, the LaGrange Cemetery was filled with more than 30 volunteers inspired by the post and ready to work. On a whim’s notice, inspired residents posted in the group, organizing a spur-of-the-moment clean up on Labor Day.

My thanks to newsletter reader Walter Wood for telling me about the story.

Glad you posted this, my grandfather is buried here. I live in Texas, but have been to the cemetery a couple times, and then it seemed to be relatively taken care of. Does anyone know how can I contact John Petrik?
