“Unsung Heroes of the Community” will be a new feature here, from time to time, and will highlight persons who selflessly, for little or no money, are making big time contributions to their community. Our first “hero” is Eunice Lemings, who for years has worked tirelessly on behalf of seniors and her church. One of her more recent undertakings has been organizing the rehabilitation of the Crowell Mountain Cemetery. She has done exhaustive research to identify 36 persons in unmarked graves and is ready to order markers. You can support her efforts by writing a check made out to “Crowell Mt. Cemetery,” and send to: Eunice Lemings, 788 Denton Road, Clinton AR 72031.

Eunice, we salute you!

If you have information about the greater Crabtree and west 16 community, or would like to make a suggestion for an “unsung hero,” call or text Jeff Burgess, 745-1249.
