We are looking for people to volunteer the day of the reunion. Please email 2012burgessfamilyreunion[at]gmail.com if you can volunteer your time!
We will hold an auction to raise funds to not only cover the expenses involved for this year, but hopefully extend to the next reunion and cover some of the cost of the gravestone markers. We could use any quality items for the auction. Thanks for your help on this. You never know what you might find!
Our thanks to Dave and Sherri Hayes, who have volunteered their time to have small markers made for some of the Burgess sandstone headstones (please see the second page). The original sandstone headstones are deteriorating. The new markers are engraved with the information from the headstone. Recently, markers were placed on five of the graves at Pine Valley Cemetery. They are for William Burgess, Sr.; Violate Stockwell Burgess; Harrison Burgess; Amanda Melvina Hammond Burgess; and Mary Almeda Burgess Gardner. Sherri has an ongoing list of headstones that need a new marker. We need your support and help at this time to raise the money for these memorial plaques. Any amount you can contribute will be appreciated! If you know of a name to add to her list, please let her know. Sherri’s phone number is (801)766-1491. Her address is 1373 N. 1250 E. – Lehi, UT 84043. Sherri’s e-mail address is scanmypics.biz if you have any questions.
