Remember Southlawn Memory Cemetery

By Jeri Ward, Atlantic

I'm glad the city is doing something about rundown/nuisance properties - but they forgot to put a major neglected property on their list.

Southlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery: it has been abandoned for many years. Only volunteers have kept it mowed, etc. We are all in our 70's and cannot continue.

The city of Atlantic expanded its city limits years ago, which incorporated the cemetery. After the last week's storms, it is in dire need of road repair and mowing, etc.

Please get started on the road repair, mowing, etc. as Memorial Day is fast approaching with visitors coming to pay tribute to their loved ones. What tales of gross neglect of the cemetery will be carried away and told!
