The annual Mount Zion Cemetery Clean Up will take place on Oct. 26, 2019. Gaines Center representatives will leave UL Lafayette, Lot number 7 located between Billeaud Hall and Earl K Long gymnasium, at 7 a.m. We will leave together and head to Dr. Gaine's home near New Roads, LA. A light breakfast will be served at the Gaines' residence with lunch and a gathering at Dr. Gaines' home provided after the cleaning. For volunteers who would like to participate but not following Gaines Center Representatives, you will want to travel to Highway 190. From there, you will drive onto Highway 1 and turn left onto Major Lane.

Contact the Gaines Center at if you are interested or for more details.
