A community cleanup is in the woks at St. Luke’s historic cemetery from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday. St. Luke’s Churchyard is one of Victoria’s earliest church burial grounds and the final resting place of many Cedar Hill, Lake Hill and Gordon Head pioneers as well as others who settled in the area.
The public is invited to join parish volunteers as they clean headstones and graves, pull a few weeds and tidy the churchyard at 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Rd. Light refreshments will be served.
