Dalton's Church of Latter-Day Saints Service Project at Archives

Dalton, Georgia. Last Saturday, Dalton's Church of Latter-Day Saints performed a service project at Crown Gardens and Archives in Dalton. A large group of church members ~ men, women and children ~ arrived at 7:30 a.m., bringing lawn equipment and cleaning products. They trimmed the hedges and holly bushes, cut down weeds, vines and small trees that had overgrown the creek and cleaned out the gutters (some of which even had small trees growing in them). Their work made a dramatic difference. The entrance is now easily visible. Some visitors have commented that they didn't even know the archives was there until the bushes were cleared away. They also cleaned inside the museum, vacuuming, dusting, polishingj, and organizing the storage room. Crown Gardens and Archives is the headquarters for Whitfield-Murray Historical Society.
