BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - Landscaping crews and private citizens are volunteering to help to repair a Bloomington cemetery damaged by motorists attending a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The Trump rally on Sunday at the Synergy Flight Center was across the street from East Lawn Memorial Gardens. More than 3,000 people attended the rally. Cemetery general manager Jim Hough told the Pantagraph (https://bit.ly/1S0XPqn ) that at least three headstones were damaged and tire tracks covered dozens of others.

Local firefighters, landscapers and other volunteers have come out since Sunday to help repair the damage. Hough says they “are going to replace everything and get it back to normal.”
