Corsicana — Black Hills Cemetery Association will hold its annual Fund Raiser. One hundred percent of the monies raised at this event will cover the care and upkeep of the old Navarro County Black Hills Cemetery during the next 12 months. Please feel free to come join us for lunch and a few unique finds! The meeting will be held at Watkins Construction at the corner of Hillside Drive (South 15th Street) and I-45.  Lunch will be served at 12 Noon (adults $6 and children $5) and an Auction will follow. You will be able to purchase handmade crafts, homemade pies, cakes and cookies. At this time, BHCA is also selling Raffle Tickets for a hand stitched king size quilt, numerous matching pillows and a framed quilted panel that matches the quilt. This quilt set was donated in memory of Linda Lee. Mrs. Lee and her friend, Wanda Meredith, spent many hours quilting. Every stitch on the quilt, panel and pillows were entirely hand-stitched. During the year, BHCA also sells the Black Hills Cemetery Cookbook, which can be bought at the Corsicana Vistior’s Center, P & S Pharmacy on Main Street, or by calling one of the Directors at (903) 654-3369, (903) 872-5987 or (903) 875-4915.
