Lee County Rallies in the Name of Preservation


More than 20 volunteers from Lee County spent their Saturday morning, June 11, working to help clear brush and rubbish at Sites 1, 2 and 3 of the George and Addie Giddens Cemetery on Frederick Road in Opelika. The service project brought volunteers from Opelika City Council, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Auburn United Methodist Church, East Alabama Jaguars and others in the community. Landowner Shey Knight and Lee County Cemetery Preservation Commission President Carmilla Tindal also participated in cleanup efforts. Tindal shared some of the cemetery’s history and explained the research process to volunteers. The next service opportunity will be July 16, according to Dr. Robert Bubb, the lead researcher and preservationist for the Giddens Cemetery.
