Cemetery board will elect members

Members of the Board of Directors of Prairie Lawn Cemetery will meet at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 19 in the city council room at Peabody City Building.

Two board positions held by Delbert Mellott and Virginia Skinner need to be filled. Each position is a five-year term.

Nominations to fill the positions will be taken at the annual meeting from voting members of the cemetery district.

Voting members are adult residents of the cemetery district or individuals who own a plot at Prairie Lawn Cemetery.

“For instance, someone who lives in El Dorado, but who owns one or more cemetery plots at Prairie Lawn would be a voting member,” said board member Carmen South. “Voting members will make the nominations and will vote for the candidates of their choice.”

For more information, contact South at (620) 983-2512 or president Bob McVey at (620) 983-2929.
