(May 2014 Annual Meeting Notice in .pdf format.)
We had our meeting at the Novice United Methodist Church on
Saturday the 17th, and started out with about 18 people and then all of
these wonderful bunch from Carlsbad and Cloudcroft New Mexico
showed and we ended up with 40 people. It was great!
Some of the business we discussed was to straighten some of the
older grave stone that are leaning, to bring in some more field dirt for
filling in graves that sink and to redo the arbor with new benches and
take out the old tables which are falling apart.
We didn't take individual pics this year, just a group picture.
ANNUAL MEETING - MAY 17, 2014
Dear Members and Friends of Atoka Cemetery Association,
The annual Atoka Cemetery Association meeting will be held
SATURDAY, MAY 17, 2014 this year. We will meet at the Novice
United Methodist Church in Novice. This is due to the possible
inclement weather at that time of year. Also, a lot of our members are
having health problems and this will make it easier for them. Of course
people will then be able to visit the cemetery at their leisure before or
after our meeting.
Our one and only burial this year was our "spark plug" and "go-getter"
Nita Shields. She had a wonderful 95th birthday party on December
12th before she became sick and passed away on December 24th. We
will miss her greatly!
The Association's meeting will begin at 10:00 for visiting and the
business meeting will start at 11:00. At noon we will have our usual
potluck meal. The bread, plates and eating utencils will be provided.
Thank you for your past generosity in giving to the Atoka Association to
keep the cemetery mowed and the grave sites maintained. If you
cannot attend and would like to contribute, please send your donation
