Another Update for TAHS Website!

Jul 7, 2007

Hello All,
I know you just received a newsletter for June updates to
site. However, we have so much going on in July and so many
more contributions to site, that I want to send out a
current update.

If you are local, I hope you will be able to participate in
some of the events scheduled in July. Especially the Domino
Night fundraiser. If you can't be there, you could still
purchase raffle tickets. Also the Park Dedication in Reagan
Park - What an awesome endeavor this has been!

Kudos to Bob Johnson! He has submitted all of the headstone
photos for the Thomas Cemetery and they are posted on site.
You can view the entire photo album, or go to each
individual photo from the index.

I have gotten such a tremendous repsonse for offers to help
on all of our cemetery projects - I am just sooooo excited!
Please contact me if you are able to help in any way!

index. HUGE Thank You to Deb Thormahlen and Brian Sanders

Sanders family website linked from the FOY surname listings
on Leon Cemetery Index. Please continue to report any
errors/corrections. You can ALSO post a comment directly
under photo of each headstone!
