The regular meeting of the Jerome cemetery association is the last Monday in March but it was not called at that time this year because of the absence of Miss Kathryn Hawkins, who for many years has been secretary and treasurer and has spent much time in the interest of the association. She is now living in Davenport.
However, the meeting was called April 11 and the attendance as small but a number of items of business were taken care of and officers were elected. I. E. Fry, who has been president the past year, asked to be released from further duty and Charley McGavran was elected president, Mrs. Susie R. Sidles secretary and treasurer and K. E. Owen was reelected trustee for a term of three years. The other trustees are Merle Loofburrow and Joe Beer.
A lily was provided by Mrs. Effie Houx of Cedar Rapids for the altar of the church Sunday in memory of her parents, the J. G. Kinneys, and a plant was furnished by Mrs. Guy Streepy of Udell.
Mr. and Mrs. Donald Owen of Iowa City spent this week end with the Bert F. Murphys and at the K. E. Owen home.
