Harden’s Chapel Cemetery, Inc. Homecoming Cancellation
The 158th annual Homecoming, held at Harden’s Chapel UMC, has been cancelled for 2021, due to COVID19-Delta variant concerns.
In 1863 Homecoming began at Harden’s Chapel United Methodist Church. Our forefathers and mothers worked to preserve our heritage and to leave a legacy, and many have already gone to their heavenly home. Our community and those with loved ones buried in the cemetery, always looked forward to the annual Homecoming on the 2nd Sunday of October.
In a recent Board of Director’s meeting, we regretfully made a decision to cancel the 158th Homecoming for 2021, due to COVID 19 and Delta Variant circumstances beyond our control. Homecoming has always been a community celebration and a time to share memories. We must continue in our mission to carry out plans for the future of the cemetery. Let me assure you that together we make decisions in the best interest of your family and the cemetery. The financial stability and the upkeep of the cemetery are vitally important to carry out the original plan implemented in 1992 “A Continuous Care System.”
(The original plan is… to use interest only of the fund, to cut the grass.) Families who have loved ones buried here are encouraged to visit often and care for the inside of your family plots. Contributions and memorials are appreciated throughout the year. You may continue to mail your contributions to the cemetery office at Harden’s Chapel Cemetery, Inc., 1830 GA Hwy. 135, Vidalia, GA 30474. An acknowledgement and memorial card will be mailed to you and the family to whom you made the contribution. Thanks for your continued prayers and support for the success of Harden’s Chapel Cemetery, Inc., which will continue for years to come.
