A storm rolled through the weekend before Memorial Day so, there was a mad dash to get the cemetery in shape the night before the Memorial Day Services.
Cemetery Clean-up Day - 2013
Due to the foot of snow that we received our Cemetery Clean-up day was finally held on Saturday May 18th.
Here is a note from our MAHS president :
I Want to "Thank" all those who helped with the Cemetery Clean-up. We were hoping for a bigger group but "All" really pitched in & did an outstanding job. Even Father Joe Fogal came to work along with Duane & Carol Hofschulte, Joe Sand, Mike & Rebecca Steffes, Jim Siems, Jim Marx, Steve Frank, Brenda Weich, Tom Stahman, Bob Hoefs, Bruce Kinlund, Ernie & Vicki Arendt, Mike Holtorf & myself..hope I didn't miss anyone. Trees got cut, monuments straightened, 8 foot markers (stones) were uncovered, & a couple of head stones were cleaned... Long day but very rewarding...
A special thanks goes out to Mike Steffes for his work and for bringing his four wheeler, trailer and other equipment ! You made the job so much easier !
