During May, just befor Memorial Day I posted some comments about the condition of the corner of the cemetary. I had several comments and I just wondered if they were still interested in helping clean it up? I know it is much too hot now but maybe when the weather cools down or even colder weather . because of snakes and things,maybe we can get in touch and complete our project.

Thank you...

I agree with you. If you are talking about the Paces Cr. Cem on on the hill where you go under the parkway to get there. Yes it needs cleaned and the county needs to put a dumpster up there while we have a cleaning day. It's a shame young people and older ones ride four wheelers up there and over the graves and when you go up there you have to take a gun with you. Never know who will be sitting up there in there cars partying and smoking dope and high and blowed away. People have no respect anymore. Please set a date and we can put it in the newspaper and on the radio also for the community and we can see if those prisoners that work on the release program maybe Kenny will let them come help us and let's get it looking nice. Thank you for being so thoughtful.

I also have family buried on the Paces Creek Cemetary. I will be more than happy to help clean up. People should respect the people that are buried up there. Years ago when I was a little girl there was a gate at the bottom of the hill. Maybe that should be what needs to be put up again and make sure the ones that wants a key can get one. Just set a date and I will come and help clean. I also have a truck that we can use to haul the garbage off in. Thanks.

Sadly, this kind of stuff goes on at cemeteries all over Clay County on a fairly regular basis. Most of them need to be at least gated shut, and if you wanted to visit, get the key from a contact person on a cemetery sign or someone that lives close to them. The penalties also need to be stiffened a lot more than what they currently are for cemetery desecration and such too.

Whenever I got to a cemetery, I even try to go out of my way to avoid stepping on known graves whenever possible. That's how much respect I tend to give them, unlike a few people I know.

I will post a date as soon as this weather lets up and we have a decently cool day.. I appreciate your response to this thread.. Thank you so much..I will try to set a time that is good for most of us..
I have had a concrete bench, a 50 ft flagpole and an outstreched landing bronze Eagle taken right out of the concrete I had poured.I wish that person had to look into my face and tell me they are sorry, but that will never happen. My brother was a Vietnam Veteran..He deserved better...They all do...
