Make a Difference Day
With almost 200 acres of land, Mount Hope is an active municipal cemetery that also serves as a park, arboretum and historic resource. Volunteers play a vital role in the maintenance of this special place and Make a Difference Day provides an excellent opportunity to make an impact in one day.
This year, Make a Difference Day is Saturday, Oct. 25. Volunteers will gather at Rochester’s historic Mount Hope Cemetery from 9 a.m. to noon to help clean and beautify this historic landmark and more volunteers are welcome.
