August 2019 Dear Friends of the Odell Cemetery, Making sure that the place our loved ones are buried remains beautiful and maintained is very important to all of us.Although cemetery spaces are owned by individuals and families, the whole cemetery belongs to all of us. Mowing is our largest expense, of course.Making sure the roads are rocked and passable is another expense, less regular but when needed, a sizeable expenditure.The directory building is a cemetery feature that requires care and is perhaps makes the first impression on visitors of the cemetery’s well-being. So many volunteers over the years have spend untold hours tending to the cemetery.In earlier times there was a Cemetery Association, loosely structured but very important for guidance and support to the Cemetery Board.It is time that the Association be revived and that a larger group of us make decisions about and implement the tasks and responsibilities of the Cemetery.
Below is a survey/donation form that we would very much appreciate your returning.It will give us information about those of you willing to serve on the Board, to be Association members and attend a yearly meeting, and those of you willing to donate time and money to Cemetery maintenance. We will look forward to hearing from you and beginning the work of broadening support for the Cemetery. Sincerely, The Odell Cemetery Board Carol Heidbrink, Catherine Renshaw, Earl Spitnogle, Mark Vitosh Odell Cemetery Established April 22, 1881 Yes, I can help. _______ I would be willing to be on the Board of Directors of the Odell Cemetery. _______I would be willing to attend a yearly meeting of the Odell Cemetery Association and share my ideas. _______I can volunteer at the Odell Cemetery to help paint the Directory Building. _______I can give a cash donation to help with expenses for the Odell Cemetery.Enclosed is my check payable to the Odell Cemetery Association, PO Box B, Odell NE 68415 in the amount of$________.
