Memorial Day Flowers

We are once again offering our service of decorating loved ones' graves at area cemetreis for the Memorial Day weekend. The price for this service is $15 a grave this year. An order from can be found below. We ask that one order from be completed for each grave you are ordering flowers for. Orders need to reach the Historical Society by Monday, May 20, 2024. For those who have ordered this service in the past, you do not have to complete an order form for each grave, you can simply mark the space that says you are a returning customer. For news customers, please complete the order form as applicable and return along with a check. Please make the checks out to HCMHS. Flowers will be placed on your loved ones grave/graves before Memorial Day. If they are a veteran, an American Flag will be placed at their grave along with the flowers. The flowers are left on the grave for the number of days permitted by the cemetery. A picture is taken of the decorated grave and will be mailed or emailed to you depending on your selection on the order form.

We will also be offering artificial flowers for sale for a donation down on State Street in Mound City for Memorial Day grave decorating. Our plans are, of course, weather permitting, but we hope to be set up starting the first week in May and offering flowers for sale through Memorial Day. Watch for us to be set up in front of the Senior Citizens of Holt County/Mound City Nutrition Site at 613 State Street in Mound City, MO. 

This Memorial Day flower project is one of the main fundraisers for the society and we appreciate all of the support of our longtime customers and look forward to helping anyone who would like to have flowers placed on loved ones' graves or purchase flowers to decorate on their own. If you have any questions about this project, you can contact board member Nancy Nauman at stearman85@hotmail.com

"One Shingle at a Time" = New roof on the depot 

Our "One Shingle at a Time" campaign that started in early spring of 2023 with the goal of raising enough money to put a new roof on the depot has been a huge success. wen we started the campagin, we did not think we would see a new roof by the fall, but we did. the socitey would like to thank everyone who donated to our campaign. The depot was in serious need of a new roof and were so very thankful that it has been put on before winter. Midwest Homes & Restoration put the new roof on and is currently finishing up some fascia work and installing new gutters and downspouts. The picutre aboce shows the new roof as the project was being finished up. We feel truly blessed to have had such great support from people to be able to accomplish this project so quickly.
