A group of students from Bob Geiser’s sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade history classes visited the historic Mexican Cemetery located on U.S. Highway 310 west of Lovell last week and made improvements while they were there. The students made and installed a sign
marking the historical site and spent part of an afternoon clearing debris and weeds from the old gravesites and adjacent areas. The sign is decorated with the colors and the national symbol of Mexico.
