Dear Friends of the Earle's Chapel Cemetery, this
year , the Board of Directors of the Earle's Chapel
Cemetery Association made a decision to make an
improvement to our Cemetery. They decided to hire a
firm out of Nacogdoches, TX called Hydrex
Environmental to make a detail map of our Cemetery.
The map will show the cemetery boundaries, roads and
grave sites. Each grave site will be colored coded
according to its statues occupied, reserved, or
vacant. Each occupies site will be labeled with the
name of the deceased as well as their life dates.
The map will be laid off in grids and as index of
the occupied sites will be alphabetized and labeled
with the grid location. The map (which will be very
large) will be placed under glass in a shelter near
the entrance of the Cemetery.
It is the Board member's hope that the map will make
it very easy for anyone visiting our cemetery to
find the location of their loved one. The map will
also serve as a record of the grave sites that are
reserved. Our aging Board members want to ensure
that the reserved sites are recorded and not lost to
time. The map of the occupied sites will keep the
unmarked sites recorded as well.
Your Board members felt like this project will be
about $9,000.00. The Board's plan was to pay for the
project out of interest earned from the
Association's investment account . However, the
Board received many comments from the Association
Membership after the announcement of the project at
this year's Homecoming that Members would be
more then willing to contribute to the payment of
the project. The project should be completed during
the first few weeks of October 2015 at which time we
will be billed for cost.
Your donation to this very worthwhile project will
be greatly meaningful for years to come.
