THE RNCIC CELEBRATED ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY
ON MAY 7, 2014
Some of our leaders from 1997 are pictured below from a recently discovered photo.
MORE LAND BOUGHT ON APRIL 7, 2014
The Regional National Cemetery Improvement Corp. bought 2.1 acres on April 7, 2014.
It lies north of the cemetery and borders the area where the Frisco Trail
will run from Government Avenue west to Hill Avenue.
We went into debt for $125,000 to make the purchase but felt it was necessary
to prevent further commercial encroachments near the cemetery.
Your support and donations are needed now more than ever.
