Work Days

Pesek-Hermes Memorials, Inc. from Hallettsville, Texas did some much needed repair and leveling of tombstones in 2018. They did excellent work!

The last work day was November 8, 2014. Twenty people gathered to pick up and burn limbs and debris from the removal of 12 dead cedar trees. The last of the dead trees were removed by the end of 2015.

A good crowd turned up for the November 16, 2013 work day and removed about 15 dead trees. Collage of pictures taken during the November 2013 workday. Thanks to Mary Anne Pickens and Willa Jepson for the pictures.

On the first work day at the cemetery on June 8, 2013 four large dead trees were removed. Collage of pictures taken during the June 2013 workday. Thanks to Martin Proll and Mary Anne Pickens for the pictures.
