Decatur Cemetery Committee asks for public's help

The Decatur Cemetery Committee has been working on a beautification project for the past year and contributions are needed to complete the project.
Trees were reported growing into graves and pushing up headstones. Large trees have been cut and the stumps have been removed.
The committee is now in the process of planting crape myrtle trees in the bare spots around the outer edge. Also, there are plans to landscape around both cemetery entrances and also on the south bank.
Contributions can be made to the Decatur Cemetery Fund. Mark your check "special project" in the right hand corner, and mail it to: Decatur City Hall, P.O. Box 307, Decatur, MS 39327.
