It was a day of giving back for Erwin-based company Nuclear Fuel Services.
More than 200 volunteers from NFS spread out across this morning and afternoon, focusing on different service projects throughout the community.
One group, laying gravel and working to help clean up the historic Martin’s Creek Cemetery.
Volunteers paved a new path with fresh gravel for cemetery visitors to drive on.
They also picked up garbage around the cemetery and helped spray headstones with antibacterial agents that will better preserve them for the future.
“There is a lot of history here,” said John Stewart, president of NFS. “As I walk around the grave-stones I see former Confederate soldiers, it goes back that far. So this is a part of our history, and we think it’s important.”
This is the second annual day of volunteering for NFS.
