The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Seal River Cemetery annual meeting and clean-up day set for Saturday

 


Submitted by Kari Kandoll, Secretary

The Seal River Cemetery Association has scheduled their annual meeting for Saturday, May 21 at 11 a.m., at the Grays River Fire Hall with the cemetery clean-up at 1 p.m., at the cemetery.

Family members of those persons buried in the Seal River Cemetery or own a plot there are eligible to attend the meeting and vote. Bring a sack lunch and we will have coffee at the fire hall.

One of the biggest expenses we incur each year is the mowing of the cemetery grounds but this annual clean-up makes a big difference for the whole year. We appreciate Micah Johnson mowing the cemetery prior to our event. Many hands make the duties enjoyable and lots of stories can be heard.

Please come prepared for rain or sun, bring your own equipment plus a soft bristled brush and gallon jugs of water. We could also raise a couple of the smaller headstones. If you go to "Find A Grave" on the internet and look up Seal River Cemetery, Wahkiakum County, Washington you can see what memorials might need to be added or headstones photographed. For more information contact Kari Kandoll at Sealrivercmetery@gmail.com or 360-849-4353.
