President Kenny Davis called the meeting to order . Lizbeth Phillips read the notes of the last meeting and reported on the funds in the treasury . Kathy Schumann gave the historian's report
noting several births and the passing of her Mother, and others .
Steve Davis reiterated the need for us descendants of the people
in the Lattice Bridge Cemetery to enlist the aid of politicians to enforce the upkeep . Bob Davis mentioned the names of Pat McGee and Emil Houghton. It was suggested that we use the sign- in sheet of the day as the petition to accompany a letter to the town of Hume and the State Reps.Also , that those of us who use email correspond with eachother and email our letters .
Paula Vettenberg made the motion that we form a work committee to go up to the cemetery and clean it up. and Shirley Lewis seconded that motion. It was voted in . Several people signed up and Sept. 14,2002 was agreed upon with Sept 21 as the raindate.Kathy Schumann stated that if you could only donate a little time here and there, that would be very helpful; to look her up .Also to bring a fishing pole as the Genesee River is right there.Bob Cummings stated that it is the town's responsibility to look after the cemetery .Kathy said the town won't do a whole lot and you've got to watch when they're there that they don't whack the flowers.Bob said the town would want a road up to the place for the equipment. Steve feel this would put the cemetery in dire straits what with parties and the like.
The last burial in the Lattice Bridge Cemetery was Maria Davis in 1921 , but there appear to be some unearthed graves, yet . Care must be taken when walking over these graves as one could end up right on top of ones great great .
Officers were elected:Bob Davis nominated Steve Davis for President. Lizbeth Phillips seconded. Steve won .Kelly Webb was elected Vice-President. Shirley Davis was elected Secretary-Treasurer; and Kathy Schumann remains as Historian .We once again agreed to donate 50.00 for the Pavillion(and to have the reunion in Mayville again).(Turns out , the Pavillion was already rented for the 2nd Sunday in July .so we had to take the 3rd Sunday.) We all agreed to eat at 2:00 next year so churchgoers wouldn't have to miss church.A young lady seated with Paula Vettenburg requested that we donate to the American Cancer Society so we decided to donate 50.00.
For next year, Pres. Kenny Davis stated we should choose how the food would be served and stick to it.We chose buffet, but keep bringing the food as if each table were bringing its own.
It was a beautiful day and the food was great.Good to see all of those handsome people.Lizbeth Phillips-outgoing sec/treas.
