Have you noticed the beautiful redbud trees and wildflowers in the cemetery lately? Happy Spring!

Thank you to all the people who have offered to help in the cemetery in one way or another. Our membership roster has grown with the help of just one person who gave us addresses of family members who have plots in the cemetery. Thank you, Shirley Dixon. Thanks, too, for all of your positive comments and good attitudes about the projects in progress.
