New Sign Installed at McCord Cemetery

This past weekend was a big one for McCord Cemetery. Meetings and fundraising galore! I'll cover more of those events in a later post. But today I want to start at the end. The events of Saturday and Sunday were capped off with the installation of a new sign at McCord Cemetery!

Supporters of McCord Cemetery proudly display the new sign installed April 17, 2010.

The sign was generously donated by Galen and Marilyn Strain, and installed by them along with newly-elected members of the McCord Cemetery Association Board and volunteers from Restore McCord.

What a ceremonial ending to a ground-breaking weekend. Thanks to all who attended!

The old sign had seen better days. This hand-painted piece of history will be preserved at the Irving Area Historical Museum.
