ROSEHILL MEMORIAL PROJECT --- Spring 2016 UPDATE
Friends, Brothers, and Allies.
We are writing to fill you in on our progress on the project to place gravemarkers for brothers in our Oriental Lodge Plot at Rosehill Cemetery buried without a headstone.
Roughly a hundred and fifty years ago our forefathers invested $50.00 to buy a plot of 26 gravesites for our members' use in section “O”. When The Great Depression hit in the 1920's 6 of our men were buried there without headstones.
This picture (above) was snapped this past Tuesday and shows on the left of the top row the 3 markers we have now placed. Silently to their left lay 3 more brothers in unmarked graves.
At the Past Masters Auction this May 24th $900 has already been pledged toward placing the remaining 3 headstones. Would you PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING TO THIS PROJECT? A gift of $2,000 will complete most of one gravemarker and if we get $1,100 more we will be able to get at least one more done this year.
Below is more information about the project and the men we are recognizing now written by two of our Past Masters.
This link to Pay-Pal will let you make a one time and/or monthly donation.
If you want to make a pledge, donate stock or other property our Secretary can help you make that gift. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (224) 357-OL33.
