Several individuals have done considerable work on their family plots at the Cemetery. That is great. Some members of the Cemetery Association have proposed that we have an old fashioned cemetery work day that could be fun and productive in getting ready for Memorial Day. All those who would like to participate in such an activity are invited to meet at the Cemetery on Saturday morning, May 18, between the hours of 9 and 11 a.m. to clean debris from the Cemetery and to weed eat around the plots. If that sounds fun to you, don your gloves and come on! Because not everyone gets a newspaper, call family and friends to invite them to join you.

Section 10E is almost completely full. One row has 11 graves instead of the normal 10. Does anyone know why Luersen is also spelled Luerson on some of the tombstones?
