Spray bottle full of water (only)? Check. Cemetery map? Check. Good shoes for walking? Check. List of photo requests outstanding? Check. Ok, I think most of us are set for our first ever Community Day taking place tomorrow (Saturday, October 18th).
We are pleased to see events scheduled around the world - some in the US include San Francisco (CA), Kansas City (MO), Lansdowne (PA), Knoxville (TN), Bristol (CT), and Victoria (TX). In Canada, folks are gathering in London (ON),... Lethbridge (AB) and on Pender Island (BC). In Australia? Join your mates in Minchinbury! You can check out the full list here: http://www.meetup.com/Find-A-Grave/
Don't see your city/cemetery on the list yet? It is not too late to add it! Enter the city where the cemetery is located and then add the details. Make sure to promote it on your Facebook page, on Twitter, Google+, etc. to get other folks to join you. Oh, and be sure to take a photo of *yourself* at the cemetery tomorrow and post it on Facebook (or Twitter or Instagram) using the hashtag #FGDay. We want to see your smiling faces and want to share all the good work you are doing with our global community! And we want you to have this badge too. Because we love you. Have fun!!

David and I are a day late and a dollar short. I didn't see the notice about Findagrave's Community day until it was too late in the evening for visiting cemeteries and taking photos.
|Blue Ridge Cemetery, Grandview, MO|
|Blue Ridge Cemetery, Grandview, MO.|
So this afternoon we decided to visit several small cemeteries within a five mile radius of the area of south Kansas City, MO. where I grew up.
|New Santa Fe Cemetery, Kansas City, MO.|
All of these cemeteries have already been read and placed on Findagrave, but wanted to take snapshots of us at the front gates.
|Martin City -- Klapmeyer Cemetery, Kansas City, MO.|
It was a beautiful day for walking and our dog, Lily, enjoyed it too! See you on Findagrave!
