The cemetery promotes and greatly appreciates volunteerism, and welcomes any individual or group’s efforts that benefit all those who come to visit Quidnessett Memorial Cemetery.
In the past, volunteerism went hand in hand with individual donations of valuable resources.
Today there is more community involvement. The following volunteers serve as a good examples of community service. We are very grateful to them for seeing an opportunity to serve and improve the cemetery, and hope they will inspire you to consider how you might be of service to our community through the cemetery.
If you, or your group, would like to volunteer at the cemetery, please contact us and tell us about the specific project you have in mind.
Exeter/West Greenwich Brownie Troop #1152 and Junior Girl Scout Troop 436
In spring 2010 the Exeter/West Greenwich Brownie Troop #1152 planted various lovely gardens for their community service project for Mothers Day. Tim Cranston provided historical stories and Kerry Rock demonstrated gravestone rubbing to the girls. Brownie leader, Wendy Miller, promises to continue bringing the girls back to volunteer at the cemetery. She has kept her word. The following year the same girls came back to plant colorful gardens in the cemetery as Junior Girl Scouts.
Boy Scouts Troop #152 North Kingstown
Every year these hard working Boy Scouts from Troop #152 North Kingstown replace all the Veterans burial flags throughout the cemetery for Memorial Day.
