Wadley Girl Scout Troop 20172 cleaned and decorated the Liberty West Baptist Cemetery (the Old Louina Cemetery) for Memorial Day to help two of their troop members earn their Girl Scout Bronze Award. The girls cleaned headstones, mowed the grass, removed weeds, moved tree limbs and picked up trash. They cut bamboo to use as flower holders and cut 100 artificial flowers, tied ribbons on them, then put a flower on each grave. Family and friends donated gas and the use of lawnmowers and weed-eaters. They enjoyed this project and would like to continue doing it each year.
