Henry Torpe will not be able to make the row markers for the cemetery as the price would be too much. Commission tries to find other things that he could do.

LETTER TO MASONS: Debby shows letter to Shirley and Betsy. Explains that it was mailed out on 5/15/18 and as of this date (5/29/18) there has been no response back.
FIRST MOWING: The first mowing was on 5/25/18. Debby explains that there were several complaints made both to Highway Department and main office regarding the condition of the grass. She spoke with Bryan Burnett and he assured her it would be done but that it would cost double as due to the height it would have to be mowed twice. Debby suggests that in the future we should try to have the first mowing the Friday before Memorial Day and not the Friday of Memorial Day. Shirley also explains that while we can do that, we also have to take the weather into consideration.
