The Crosby Cemetery Association Board will host the 2014 Crosby Association Annual Meeting on March 24. Anyone who has family buried at Crosby is considered a member and is encouraged to attend. Guests are certainly welcomed. We are making considerable changes and improvements and we seek your input and support. The meeting will be held at Leatherwood Funeral Home, highway 29 east. The annual meeting will start at 5:30 pm. Our Board feels strongly that it is important to support all community businesses that serve our customers and thus we will host this meeting at Mason’s newest funeral business, Leatherwood Funeral Services. Mr. Martin Leatherwood will host, answer questions, and offer a quick tour of the facilities during a short break.
Our Board will also address specific questions and options regarding the Crosby Rock Fence Project. We are very close to bidding out the ‘rock fence project’ however we are still in need of a few more promissory signatures. Our goal is to secure the loan in March and to bid the entire project out in May of this year. The project will consist of building an 800 feet long natural stone fence running parallel to Hwy 87 on the east side of the cemetery and along the north side. Crosby Cemetery is rich in character and history, and our goal is to build upon that rich history. The Crosby Board thanks all those family members that have made donations thus far and ask for your continued support and contributions.
Donations can also be mailed to Crosby Cemetery Fence Project, P.O. Box 1323, Mason, Texas. Make all checks payable to: Crosby Cemetery Fence Project. The Cemetery Association is a non-profit organization so your donations will be tax deductible. For more information, contact Rebecca Moneyhon or Homer Sanchez.
