Dear Plot Owner:

     In the Spring of 2004, your Trustees were faced with the problem of finding a suitable person to take over the operation of the Cemetery.

     We were fortunate in securing the services of Pasquini Contractors, and Mount Golda Association, to provide the maintenance services for Huntington Rural Cemetery.

     We are aware of the fact that to enter into this contract for services, it would require a considerable outlay of money. We felt, however, that in order to attract future plot owners and to increase the interest of the public in our cemetery this expenditure was necessary. If you have visited the cemetery lately, we are sure that you have noticed a vast improvement in its appearance.

     The cemetery is located in one of the most prestigious areas in Huntington. However, the cost of maintaining the cemetery is considerably higher than other cemeteries for the main reason that it is located on a hillside.

     This is your cemetery and the manner in which it is cared for is dependent upon the extent of your interest and financial support. We therefore urge that you give this matter your sincere and careful consideration.

     There are a large number of plots, particularly in the old section of the Cemetery for which no income is received for their care. We hope that this letter will reach some of the proprietors of these plots who will in turn assume their responsibility in providing the funds necessary for the care of these plots.

     The period of low interest rates and lower return on investments has brought about a serious condition which requires your help. For this reason, we are enclosing a self addressed envelope which you may sign and return with your generous tax deductible gift will help us to maintain our historical cemetery.

Thank you,

Huntington Historical Cemetery Association
