May 2023 Fund Drive & News
St. Emanuel Burial Association, Codorus, Pa
A FUND RAISING DRIVE is being held for St. Emanuel Burial Association during the month of May 2023.
St Emanuel was the Union Cemetery for Trinity Lutheran and Christ UCC Churches. The cemetery is located across York Street, back one block on Sunset View Street.
Remember, a part of our church heritage is at this site and many of the grave stones are dated from 1800 to 1950, with some having the information written in German.
We are thankful for those who have been helping to keep the site well groomed by mowing and caring for the cemetery.
There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for volunteers to mow using the riding mower and string trimmer owned by St Emanuel and stored in the UCC garage. Interested persons please contact Larry Linebaugh or use the sign-up
sheet in the hallway opposite the entry to the men’s restroom.
The association’s income is from a small amount from the county and donations from the two churches.
All help and donations are appreciated.
Checks can be made out to Trinity Lutheran Church and please mark for St Emanuel Burial Association.
Board of Directors for St Emanuel Burial Cemetery is:
TRINITY – Larry Linebaugh. Scott Krebs
UCC -Glenn Bortner, Cindy Baugher, Anna Yingling
The St Emanuel Cemetery Burial Association Trinity’s board
is in need of a member.
Please contact Larry Linebaugh if you can help, we usually have 1 meeting each year unless something comes up.
