|The Hur Herald will publish notification of local cemeteries seeking donations for mowing and upkeep through May 31st.|
Email information to email@example.com
Please include name of trustee or treasurer and the complete mailing address.
The generation of people who were dedicated to remembering their families who have passed and dutifully seen to the mowing and upkeep of the cemeteries in which their families are buried, is quickly fading.
In Calhoun County there are over 200 cemeteries recorded, many others have long faded in the woods.
For the first time some are growing up, while others are struggling to raise a little money to hire mowing and weed-eating.
Those hearty souls who often volunteered clean-up efforts are gone.
Like the burial grounds of yore, they are fading.
