Well, it's that time of the year for another election of a Pipe Creek Cemetery Trustee.
The Annual Meeting of the Pipe Creek Cemetery Association will be held Saturday, Sept. 12 at 7 pm. In case of inclement weather, the meeting will be moved to Doug & Beth's home on FM 1283.
Thanks to Rosa Lee Schott (now deceased) we will not run out of grave plots in the cemetery for a long, long time. She donated five acres to the association 2 Nov 95, in memory of Adolph H. Schott and Laura Newcomer Schott. What a wonderful generous gift!
The association has been busy working on GPS mapping with Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC. We recently received preliminary maps. They are, in a word, "Outstanding." We could have as many as 4,000 plots total in the Pipe Creek Cemetery. At present we have 1,068 marked burials.
I have been a Pipe Creek Cemetery Trustee since 1990. These 25 years of service have been ones of great change. We have gone from no maps to a hand drawn map to the latest technology - GPS created computerized mapping.
I am honored to be a part of the cemetery association board, and look forward to continued service.
