Emporia News needs your help...

Do you read Emporia News every day? Have you ever considered supporting this community based news service with a donation? You may also make a recurring donation with a subscription.

Emporia News needs your help because it is time to replace a laptop and a camera, so that I may continue to bring you a quality site. It troubles me to ask for donations, but without support, Emporia News may be forced to shut down. Thank You.

Spring Clean-up at Greensville Memorial Cemetery

We will be doing an annual clean up of the cemetery the week of May 12 - 16, 2014.  At this time, all old flowers, flower stands and vases that are not attached to markers will be removed.  If you would like to keep these items, please remove before May 12.   All mini flag stands will be permitted, as long as they are close to the markers.   If you should have any questions, please call Carlissa at 434-882-5871. Thanks for helping us keep your cemetery beautiful.
