The Mount Union Cemetery Association’s annual meeting will run 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Jan. 14 in Philomath Community Church’s fellowship hall, organizers announced.

Janet Cornelius, Mount Union Cemetery sexton, said those who own burial sites are eligible to serve on the association’s board of directors and anyone with an interest can sit in.

“All who are interested in preserving and improving this gem on the eastern edge of Philomath are encouraged to attend,” Cornelius added. “Your ideas and enthusiasm are welcome.”

The Mount Union Cemetery Association’s charter requires that an annual meeting be held each November but board member illnesses and travel pushed it to January. It will be the organization’s first in-person meeting that’s open to the public since 2019. Both the 2020 and 2021 meetings included board members only because of COVID.

The church is located at 145 N. 14th St., in Philomath.
