Sweet Olive RESCUE

Everyone remember this post on Sweet Olive Cemetery? Just as a refresher, it's the oldest African American Cemetery in Baton Rouge. It's located at North and 22nd in Mid City.

I'm Lindsey, and I'm a public relations senior at LSU. We're partnering with the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance as part of our capstone class to host Sweet Olive RESCUE on Saturday, Oct. 30 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We're looking for volunteers for a large-scale cleanup of the cemetery that will include weed removal, painting and general maintenance of the historic site.

The cleanup will give volunteers the opportunity to make an immediate impact.

Supplies and lunch will be provided. If you're interested, you can contact me at to sign up.

We appreciate your support! Special thanks to Louisiana Graveyard Rabbit for allowing us to post!

Thanks in advance,
