New McCord Cemetery sign. Marilyn Strain planted flowers at the base. They'll be beautiful once they bloom!
Note: 100% of all proceeds will go toward cemetery maintainence and restoration.
You can make a whole day of it! We'll be serving mostaccioli for lunch, with salad, garlic bread, beverages & delicious home-made desserts. The raffle will include several prizes, including a table top quilt donated by Marilyn Strain and a rug donated by Marilyn Taylor. (Other raffle items are still being donated as I write this!)
During the afternoon meeting, we will formally "restore" the McCord Cemetery Association, the legal owner of the cemetery, by electing officers. The Association needs a president, a secretary-treasurer and 3 directors. We are preparing nomination forms now, so if you or anyone you know would like to serve in one of these postitions, please let us know so we can send you a form. Anyone who has relatives buried at McCord is automatically a member of the Association, but everyone is invited to attend the meeting.
We'll also be planning this season's cemetery improvements during the meeting. Several ideas will be discussed, including a cleanup day and a new fence. Weather permitting, we'll cap it all off by heading to the cemetery to intall a new sign that has been donated by Galen & Marilyn Strain!
I'm really looking forward to this day, and I can't wait to see you all in person. Please come for as much of the day as you can!
