On Saturday, July 15th, the Cincinnati Reds are excited to welcome the Scouts, their friends, & families to the 2017 Scout Service Day! This day will be in celebration of the hard work done by the scouts at Wesleyan Cemetery earlier in the day.

The pre-game service project is planned by an organization called Keep Cincinnati Beautiful that plans local volunteer beautification projects. This project will take place at Wesleyan Cemetery from 9AM-12PM on July 15th. Wesleyan Cemetery is the oldest continuously operating cemetery in Hamilton County. Established in 1843, it is located at 4003 Colerain Ave. in Cincinnati’s Northside neighborhood.
Service activities will include:
- General landscaping
- Weeding flower beds
- Trimming overgrowth
- Cleaning the fence line of overgrowth
- Trimming around markers
- Picking up litter
Earlier this , on May 8th, a ceremony took place at Wesleyan Cemetery to officially dedicate a marker at the gravesite of Fred Waterman, the starting third baseman on baseball’s first all-professional team, the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings. Waterman anchored third base for the Red Stockings throughout their undefeated 1869 campaign and returned in 1870 when the Red Stockings again dominated the game recording 67 victories against only 6 defeats. Waterman was buried in the historic cemetery in 1899. He is one of only two members of the 1869 Red Stockings buried in Cincinnati.

The service project is optional and would take place prior to the Cincinnati Reds baseball game from 9:00am – 12 noon. Game time is at 7:10pm. After the project families will have plenty of time to grab some lunch, explore downtown Cincinnati and new riverfront parks, or return home and clean-up before the game.
