The Mecklenburg chapter is joining chapter member and Eagle Scout David Miller (Troop 327, Lakeland District, Piedmont Council) to honor and mark the site of an original slave cemetery at Rehobeth United Methodist Church. David’s Eagle Scout project was to clean the cemetery and identify where the people were buried. We are now honoring those people with a service on February 4, 2018. Color Guard is encouraged to participate. Please email Jim Tatum to participate or for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
