From Wayne Brunelle, President
Eureka Cemetary and Mausoleum
You may know already, at Eureka Cemetery here in Newport, we have two veteran memorials on our property in need of lighting. We hold Memorial Day celebrations every year without any ready power for our amplifier or lights for our two memorials and flag pole. We use a portable generator temporarily during the ceremony but we would like a more permanent solution for both power and lights.
In order to properly fly our flags on Memorial Day along with any other day when flags are flown through the night, we would need lighting. We would like our two memorials lighted year round. We have obtained a local contractor bid for lighting installation along with the costs for the PUD to install the line totaling $6,000 together.
We are asking for help from Lincoln County citizens to help fund this project. We are an official 501(c)(13) Non-profit organization and as such, all contributions to Eureka Cemetery are tax deductible. For more details or information, please ask your readers to call 541.265.7282 or visit our website at http://eurekacemetery.org/ . Thank you.
President, Eureka Cemetery & Mausoleum Association
