Old Docks Creek Cemetery thanks public

Board members for the Old Docks Creek Cemetery are thanking the public for making the place look nice, and reminding of upcoming important information.

“It was good to see so many out decorating gravesites at Old Docks Creek Cemetery on Memorial Day weekend,” Debbie Holback said. “The cemetery looks beautiful!”

Any ground decorations on gravesite must be removed by June 10 for mowing to resume.

Board members collected donations to keep the cemetery mowed and maintained throughout the year over the weekend.

“We want to thank all those who donated; we are dependent on your contributions,” Hoback said. “Donations are down this year, but costs continue to rise.”

Donations are still being accepted. Checks should be made out to Old Docks Creek Mowing Fund and mailed to Old Docks Creek Cemetery — Kelli Ferguson, Treasurer at 2106 Booth Road; Kenova, WV 25530.
