TAMA NEWS-HERALD The Oak Hill Cemetery Association met on April 10th at 2:00 p.m. at the Blue Grass Cafe in downtown Tama. Hostesses for the meeting were Shirley Franklin, Anne Michael and Judy Welch. President Lacina opened the meeting by all pledging allegiance to the flag. Roll call was answered by 15 members to "What are you happy or sad about today?" Minutes and Treasurers report of the February meeting were read and approved as read.
The speaker for the day was Lauire Schultz, president of the Tama County Humane Society. She stated that the Humane Society has purchased a building on East 5th St. It is not ready for business yet, but said that the building will be divided into two sections, the front part will be for a thrift shop and the back area will be for the animals that are brought in, lost, injured, or not wanted anymore. After the animals have had their shots and are nursed back to health, they will be ready for adoption by the right person. There is a list of items on the Shelter Remodel list and also a list of stock up items that are needed to help get the shelter up and running. Contact Laurie Schultz at 641-691-7676 for more information.
More discussion was held on the condition of the cemetery and getting someone to work on the stones in the cemetery that need repair and ones that have names that are unreadable.
The meeting was then turned over to the hostesses. They passed out a jar that was filled with Easter colored M&M's. The hostesses served a delicious Strawberry Cheescake dessert for lunch.
Hostesses for the June meeting will be Bonnie Crawford, Lois Johannsen and Sally Willett. Roll Call is "Bring a picture of your wedding."
