Cane Creek news told
Cane Creek Cemetery in Obion County is moving into the mowing season and contributions for the property upkeep are needed, according to a spokesman.
Funds may be mailed to that fund in care of Pamela Jones Screen, 4778 East Caudle Road, Rives, TN 38253.
The church building has been standing for 157 years and was last the subject of restorative efforts in 1992 when a new roof was put on, the building was straightened, new windows were installed and painting was done inside and out. All this was paid for with donations.
The building is in dire need of more work, a spokesman said, adding that the roof leaks and needs to be replaced and the exterior needs to be scraped and painted.
A separate account, under the name Cane Creek Primitive Baptist Church building fund, has been set up for that purpose. Donations may be sent to the above address and marked for improvements to the church building.
