To anyone having family or loved ones buried in the Samples Cemetery at Procious, please consider making contributions annually to its upkeep. Each mowing and weed eating of the extensive grounds cost $80 last year. At present, the fund is nearly depleted. A faithful few generously send money each year, but if everyone who can would contribute some amount annually, it would be greatly appreciated.  Call 965-5704 if you have any concerns. Mailing address is Loretta Moore, 5008 Pequonia Drive, Elkview , WV 25071. To any party who has their own equipment, and would like to be considered for the job of upkeep this year, please call.
