FRANKLIN GROVE CEMETERY ASSOCIATION NEEDS YOUR HELP

The Franklin Grove Cemetery Association is in need of funds to keep the grounds in pristine condition.

The Board was just made aware of the law that "PROHIBITS" funds charged for perpetual care when purchasing lots being used for maintenance, i.e. mowing and general upkeep. Thus, the board must determine what legal options are available for funding this important maintenance upkeep.

The Board is seeking donations, as our funds are in very short supply due to the low interest rates on our Certificate of Deposit and the State Law, which prohibits using those funds from perpetual care.

We are in the process of assessing our options, but the funds for keeping the grounds mowed and trimmed are about to run out. At this time, donations to keep us going until we have a more definite solution are our only option.

We hope you will respond to our request. The donations may be turned in at the Franklin Grove Branch of the First National Bank in Amboy with the specific notation to hold for THE FRANKLIN GROVE CEMETERY MAINTENANCE FUND.

We would appreciate whatever you can do to keep the grounds in pristine order.

Thank you very much,
The Franklin Grove Cemetery Board
