Thank you to Jeremy Garza for coordinating the clean-up at the North Cemetery, on the Lansing’s Southside. Jeremy and the Local 333 Plumbers and Pipefitter members worked diligently to remove the brush, weeds, cut down trees and broken limbs, picked up trash, and repositioned and stood upright some of the fallen tombstones, they also placed flags on the graves of our veterans.
