Stearns Cemetery Annual Clean-Up Meeting

Please plan on attending the Annual Clean-Up Meeting on

Saturday, May 21, 2016 at the cemetery.

Clean-up begins in the AM, with a potluck lunch served at noon.

A meeting will follow the potluck.

Those attending are asked to bring a potluck dish of their choice.

The Cemetery Association is providing ham, fried chicken, soft drinks, silverware, plates and water.

Dues of $25.00 per year for the cemetery fund are due again. It is really helpful if you can send in the dues by May 14, 2016, using the stub included with this letter. If you are coming to the Annual Clean-Up Day on May 21, you can pay them then. These dues are voluntary, not mandatory – “Give What You Can”.

Please remember that this fund is what we use to maintain the Cemetery.

If you are interested in running for elections or have someone to nominate, please be prepared to do so at the Annual Meeting. A reminder to members: per Article 6 of the By-Laws, anyone nominated for election to a board position must be present to be elected unless they have provided their agreement to election in writing and in advance of the meeting. The four offices that are up for election are President, Vice-President, Secretary and Director #1. Enclosed are duties and qualifications of the board members for your consideration.

 The Board of Directors is asking for the membership’s help.  Having accurate records simplifies the burial process when it is needed most. The Cemetery Association has not always kept copies of the certificates that were sold, therefore, there are many certificates that we do not have copies of.  In an effort to update and complete the cemetery’s records we are requesting that you contact the cemetery secretary if you have not previously verified that we have a copy of your certificate.

If you have some plots you wish to sell back to the Cemetery, please let us know.  There are several people interested in obtaining one or more plots, but we currently do not have many plots available and are unable to accommodate those who have already inquired about the purchase of plots and are on our “waiting list”.

If you have any questions please call the board member listed below:

Jan Reichstein, Secretary, at (541) 535-6594 or e-mail jreichstein6594@msn.com

Comments and suggestions are encouraged.

If you would like to receive a copy of the Treasurer’s Report or the

Annual Meeting Minutes, please submit your request along with a

Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope.

Grant From Oregon State Parks Helps Place New Stone

The Wagner Creek Cemetery Association is pleased to announce the
placement of a new memorial stone at the Stearns-Wagner Creek Cemetery
honoring the pioneer family who donated the land as a burial place for
settlers in the area. We received a grant from Oregon State Parks and
Recreation to make a duplicate of the original concrete stone which has
deteriorated over time. The new stone is made from granite so that the
history of this cemetery will be preserved for ages to come.
