Lane Street Project: sponsor a marker, round 2.

Want to help Lane Street Project, but you’re nowhere near Wilson? Adopt a headstone!

For the discounted rate of $50, Foster Stone and Cemetery Care will clean, stabilize, and reset a headstone in Odd Fellows or Rountree Cemeteries. Billy Foster has more than “20 years of experience honoring the memory of loved ones” and has already transformed the appearance of Odd Fellows. White marble grave markers now stand upright, gleaming in orderly rows.Though there is much work to be done, the front section of the cemetery no longer looks abandoned.

Odd Fellows Cemetery, cleaned and straightened. (Somebody stole our big pot of pansies though. Sigh.)

If you’d like to make a direct and immediate impact on the ongoing reclamation of Odd Fellows, please donate — CashApp $blackwideawake, Venmo @lanestreetproject, PayPal, Zelle, whatever works for you. No amount is too small; we can pool funds.

Here are a few markers that need your help:
