The Crosby Cemetery Association Board is kicking off of the Crosby Cemetery Rock Fence Project this fall and your support is needed. The project will consist of building a natural stone fence running parallel to Hwy 87 on the east side of the cemetery and along the north side.
Crosby Cemetery lies along the northern limits of the City of Mason and is one of the most visual sites to travelers and citizens. Crosby cemetery is rich in character and history. Crosby is registered as the first burial ground for the citizens of Mason and during 1988 was dedicated as a Historic Cemetery. Crosby’s appearance and care can be improved and the Crosby Cemetery Association (CCA) Board has made a commitment to making structural improvements.
The addition of the new rock fence constructed of native stone is an appropriate way to honor not only our first citizens of Mason, but also the family and friends that lay at rest there today. The rock fence will be approximately 800 feet in length and our goal is to raise $25,000. Plans are to bid the project in November of 2013.
We ask for your support and contributions. Promissory signatures and donations are needed to help fund the project this fall. Please consider signing up as a promissory and consider making a donation is memory of a loved one. A donor envelope explaining sponsor and donation options will be included in next week’s Mason County News.
An account has been opened at Mason Bank and donations can be deposited into the Crosby Cemetery Fence Project account. Donations can also be mailed to Crosby Cemetery Fence Project, PO Box 1323, Mason, Texas. Make all checks payable to: Crosby Cemetery Fence Project.
