The Officers and Directors of the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association invite the community to the 64th Annual Homecoming on June 5, 2016. Rain or shine, this is an opportunity to take time to see friends and family members at a friendly gathering and come together as a community in remembrance of those who have passed. The event will be held in the park area of the cemetery, 16101 W. State Hwy 29. The meal will begin about 11 a.m. and will be catered by Mopsie’s Catering. It will consist of barbecue brisket, sausage, beans, coleslaw, condiments and tea for $12 per plate. Please bring tables and chairs as seating is limited. There are several events that go on during the day. Former Williamson County 26th District Court Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield is the guest speaker. Judge Stubblefield has a wealth of knowledge of Liberty Hill history and he is sure to provide this knowledge in an entertaining way. Another important part of the homecoming is the reading of those who have passed since homecoming last year. For many, this is a part of the closure associated with the passing of a loved one. This year, guests will enjoy the musical talent provided by Cade Baccus. Baccus is a resident of the Liberty Hill area and has been singing, playing, and writing Country & Western style music for the past decade. Baccus can be found performing bluegrass, rockabilly and honky-tonk music with his band, The Sawdust Stompers, at venues all over the state on the weekends. During the week, he plays gospel and children’s music at churches, schools and day cares in and around his hometown. Baccus has several albums for sale and a large and varied songbook. His daughters, Maelynn and C’Lee, will be singing with him. Gary Spivey and his daughter, Kandice Wright, will have pictures on display from years past of old Liberty Hill. Extra pictures may be available for those interested in the past, and those with questions about Liberty Hill can find answers at Homecoming. Books will be available for purchase, which contain history of the Liberty Hill Cemetery as well as history about Liberty Hill. The books Culture of the Shin Oak Ridge Folk by J. Gordon Bryson, Recollections and Observations of Judge C. L. Chance as told to his son Joseph E. Chance and the Liberty Hill Cemetery Book of Burials will be available for purchase with the proceeds to benefit the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association. Homecoming is the only formal fundraiser for the cemetery association. Those unable to attend this year’s homecoming who would like to send a donation may send a check payable to the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association, PO Box 73, Liberty Hill, TX 78642. Donations are greatly appreciated and are what keep the cemetery in the conditions that families have come to expect. Contributions also help with future projects to upgrade the cemetery.
