Boolarra Public Cemetery Trust – June 2020


These are certainly interesting and challenging times. I can think of no more challenging and distressing time than losing a loved one during these circumstances. With restrictions initially of 10 people in attendance indoors and 20 outdoors, the love and strength family members provide would have been tested. The Boolarra Cemetery Trust extends its thoughts and sympathy to any person in our community who have had to go through this.
Thankfully as this edition of the Link goes out attendees for funerals can be 50 people as from 1 June. No doubt this will improve as the government moves to get us back to almost what we are used to.
The Trust has been able to keep the Cemetery grounds neat and tidy during this time and it is lovely to see the plants and trees thriving under the care of Merilyn, our grounds person.
Proposed meeting dates for 2020 are Wednesday 17 June at 7.30pm at the Hall
Wednesday 19 August AGM (followed by ordinary meeting) 7.30pm at the Hall, Wednesday 21 October 7.30pm at Hall and Wednesday 16 December 7.30pm at the Hall. These dates are of course subject to current community gathering rules.
The Trust has eight members with three positions vacant. If you feel you may have an interest or expertise to contribute, I can personally recommend applying for a position
on the Trust particularly if you are a resident of Boolarra and District because a Cemetery Trust like ours reflects the community it serves.

Meanwhile stay safe and well.
