V Old Business

Laurie identified 31 burials without a permanent headstone. All but 2 do not have a known living relative. Those families will be contacted with a personal note. Premier Memorial in Tacoma had the best deal for 12' x 12' x 4' granite markers. We would be getting wholesale cost: $137.00 less 15% for an order of 10. They would be using leftover material and we would not have a choice in color selection. Each could be engraved with Name, DOB and DOD. Some graphics could be included. Stones will be delivered to the cemetery. We would need to do the installation.
Laurie will order 10.
A signup sheet was passed around for those who would like to help identify the plots and set the stones one or two days during the summer
