Wednesday, May 26, 2010 • Posted May 26, 2010

Bill Hight, President of the Long Mountain Improvement Corp. (Cemetery) will conduct a brief memorial service at the Long Mountain Cemetery on Monday eve the 31st at 8 p.m.

Those wishing to stay to witness the beautiful sunset are encouraged to do so. We will have iced tea and cookies along with a time to socialize. Your attendance will be appreciated.

Anyone is encouraged to make a brief statement as a part of the ceremony in expressing their past association with the fallen members of the military. My grandson of Houston, Aiden Sharabba will do the honors of operating the flag.

My neice, Karen Hight Swaney, of the Mason office of Hill Country Telephone, has recently retrieved information in regard to the three Civil War veterans buried in the cemetery and we will give some brief accounting of their involvement as we endeavor to obtain Civil War markers for them.
