September 17, 2019 - In preparation for the cemetery homecoming, the annual workday to ensure that everything is ready was held Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 7:00 A.M. to 9:00 A.M. This was a time to ready the area for dinner on the grounds, and ensure that the open air chapel is ready.
Now, the annual Old East Hamilton Cemetery Homecoming will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2019, from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Please join us for dinner on the grounds, fellowship, music, and a short business meeting. We will also be accepting donations for the upkeep and maintenance of our beautiful historical cemetery. We hope you plan to attend because we would love to see everyone there. If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate, please contact Dudley Cox at 936-368-2596.
