Old/New Business

The Lacy cemetery has not been mowed and it is all grown up. Joe Clarke visited there and it was a terrible mess.

Michael Clarke and David Clarke talked to Mr. Moreland. Last year they cut the grass.

The newsletter for next year will be done by Stephani Gifford.

We need new people to put flowers at the Lacy cemetery and at Benjamin Clarke's.

The motion was made by Sharron Mathews to discontinue the flower fund and to put the money in the scholarship fund. Glenda Christian seconded this motion.
