October 20, 2015 - Club Meeting Print

Lion Dick BoehrThe Bluffton Lions club meeting, Tuesday Noon, October 20, 2015 was held in the conference room at the Bluffton Comfort, Inn.

The program at the meeting was given by Lion Dick Boehr, member of Shannon Cemetery Commission. Boehr shared information about his family’s long standing involvement in the community and his personal interest in improving the neglected Shannon Cemetery. Because of his continuing interest in improving the appearance of Bluffton & working with Bluffton village Council, he agreed to chair a committee to make recommendation to Council, for improving the appearance of the Cemetery and remembering those laid to rest there. After considerable study of records, gathering vandalized grave stones etc a proposed designed was created, to have the cemetery become a remembrance park. A small group of people then became aware of the proposed changes and the whole idea became a center of controversy…as written about in the local press.

Boehr’s presentation gave Lions members an overview of the issue. Currently the Friends of Shannon cemetery (the opposition group) & Shannon Cemetery Commission (Council appointed) are trying to agree on a restoration plan.
