GENESEO – The Association for the Preservation of Geneseo says that this year’s work will begin Saturday on the ongoing Save the Wall Project along South Street (Rte. 20A) and Mount Morris Road (Rte. 36).
According to the FundRazr.com pafe for the project, volunteers will resume work at 9 a.m. Saturday on the iconic Wall at the edge of the Wadsworth estate.
says APOG’s Save the Wall Project Fund Razr page. “Thank You everyone who contributed to making this years work on The Wall Possible! You gotta love a community that supports volunteer driven community beautification projects!
Workdays begin on June 6 and run through September 26. APOG instructs volunteers to meet at the wall at 9 a.m. each Saturday and work until noon. There is work for all skill levels, including clearing brush, moving and cleaning stones, and rebuilding and sealing the wall.
Masons John White and his son, John White were hired to train volunteers in cleaning and preparing fallen stones for the rebuilding work. Led by this team of master stone masons, community volunteers participate in the rebuilding of the historic mile long stone wall.
Since 2012, volunteers have spent over 2,500 hours working on the wall and the community has donated over $53,198.00 in cash and in-kind donations.
You can donate to the project here. The project has raised $5,905 towards its goal of $7,000.
