Every January, new board members join Oak Grove and we are very pleased to welcome Elizabeth Cohen, Shirley Merritt, and Linda Rogers in 2014! Following an orientation get-together, the new members attended their first meeting in January.
We are very thankful for the service of both Patricia Thessing and Sue Siria, whose terms ended in December. Patricia has most recently served as the President of the Board where she championed the recent beautification efforts at the cemetery. Sue has most recently served as the Secretary of the Board. The cemetery is all the better for them having served it!
A new slate of officers was also selected at the January meeting:
Carol Powers - President
Jason Hansen - Vice-President
Brenda Collier - Secretary
Chris Odom - Treasurer
Great things are happening at Oak Grove Cemetery and we invite you to visit any time! Keep watching for more exciting news to come throughout the year.
Oak Grove Cemetery is an active 24 acre cemetery located in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas. The cemetery’s entrance is at the east end of Bruce Street, which was named to honor George W. Bruce, a Conway pioneer who, in 1880, served as the first president of the Oak Grove Cemetery Association. The Historic Section of Oak Grove is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This 10-acre portion is the final resting place of most of Conway's citizens from its earliest era.
