On 30th of May each year the cemetery committee has a little program, in which the Sec. of Committee reads the total contribution of the year and gives report. The comm. tries to have a local speaker, usually a descendent of someone buried there. Most of the burials have been people who live within 3 to 10 miles of the cemetery.
