    The Buckeye Pioneer Cemetery was nothing but an overgrown plot of land. I got a group of people together, and we cleaned the lot out. We only found three original headstones. I later go a list from the Historical Society, showing some names of people who were buried there. Then went to different businesses asking for things, like the monument, matching bench, and I given all the walkway and wheelchair ramp, the 480 feet of six foot Cyclone Fencing, a double swing gate, and also a six foot high Pedestrian gate. The two signs identifying the cemetery also.
    I did this work to give back to my hometown, and I am proud of my accomplishments.
