As we march steadily onward in 2016, this would be a great time to take care of a few housecleaning things for battlefield preservation efforts. If you are a volunteer and do anything from major projects all the way down to picking up trash along the roadside, make sure you keep a notebook noting the following information: Where did you volunteer? What Date? What exactly did you do? Take a photo of the work you did. Take all this information and keep it safe throughout the year. Do this every time you help a battlefield, and Lord knows we need your help all over the state. This information can be used as a tax write-off at the end of the year.
Sometime this week, go on out to the store and pick up a box of trash bags, gloves, and some trash grabbers. Keep them in your vehicle. You never know when you might be in the position to help out some.
