Donations for upkeep of Center Grove Cemetery needed

Funds are at an all-time low for upkeep of Center Grove Cemetery near Newark.

The annual cleanup, a time when many contributions are made, was unable to be held last year due to COVID-19.

The cemetery committee is faced with the possibility of having to charge for burials if it cannot operate on donations.

Tax-deductible contributions to the cemetery help to continue the effort to maintain this historical setting. Individuals are asked to consider making donations in honor of or in memory of a loved one or to consider making a bequest in their will.

Donations may be mailed to: Center Grove Cemetery Committee, Orville Arms, chairman, 7390 White Drive, Charlotte, AR 72522.
