Mt. Albion workers tackle big job of removing leaves

ALBION – Parts of Mount Albion Cemetery look like a blanket of orange, red and yellow leaves.


The cemetery’s workers have been making long piles of leaves and then sucking them up with a vacuum truck. Kenny Blank, one of the cemetery’s workers, was clearing leaves on the east side of the cemetery this afternoon.


Blank and the cemetery workers are busy trying to clear the historic cemetery, home to many tall mature trees, from numerous leaves.


Many leaves are yet to fall at Mount Albion.


The tower at Mount Albion, a memorial that was built in 1876 to the nearly 500 Orleans County soldiers killed during the Civil War, is more visible now that the trees are shedding leaves.


Mount Albion is even more stunning in the fall, with the blast of colors from the fall foliage.
