We appreciate all the members who attended our Directors' meeting last Tuesday at the Blanco Library. We received some good feedback and now have a volunteer committee to work on a budget and people interested in organizing for more community involvement in the Cemetery. There was extensive discussion of maintenance needs within budget constraints. We continue to build a list of active Association members.

There will be another Directors meeting in the next 2-3 weeks to help us get ready for our Annual Meeting of the membership in February. The date of the member meeting is Saturday, February 23. We'll post notices at the cemetery and in the Blanco newspaper.

We thank all the members who have already sent in their maintenance donations. Today we cover Section 14E. The back of this section is Jones Avenue.
