REAGAN CEMETERY DECORATION

TO BE IN HELD LATER, THIS YEAR

  Decoration Day, traditionally held on the fourth Sunday in May, at the Reagan

Cemetery in Little Crab, will be held somewhat later, this year, due to groundwork

and gravestone preservation and restoration being done in the cemetery.

Currently, some older trees with dead limbs and roots growing near or beneath

gravestones, are being trimmed or harvested; stones that have fallen into disrepair are being repaired; and all stones, particularly those on which moss has grown, are being cleaned.

 Additionally, a new and much needed fence is being erected around the cemetery

grounds. A newly leveled and graveled road has also been added, making driving up the

hill to the cemetery much safer and easier.

An alternate decoration date for this year’s decoration will be announced shortly.

Anyone, particularly those having ancestors or relatives buried at the Reagan

Cemetery, is encouraged to donate to its annual upkeep, by mailing a contribution to

The Reagan Cemetery, P. O. Box 215, Jamestown, Tn. 38556, attn. Treasurer.  Please

note “Annual Upkeep” on your check.
