Warren’s Memories

A group of interested people decided to call a meeting by telling everyone who was interested there would be a meeting at Providence Church on May, 1968.  The purpose of the meeting was to organize to maintain the cemetery grounds. 

The meeting house was full.  The first board was selected consisting of Jack Merrill,     L. E. Bryant, Luna Moulton, Fleet Moulton, Curtis Penn, and Maurice Moulton.           L. E. Bryant was elected president.

Warren was not at the meeting since he lived in New York at that time.  Instead, he received a letter from his mother telling him about the meeting.

Memories of past board members are brought into the conversation as Warren mentions these former board members.
