June – August 2013
The Officers and Directors of the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association invite the community to the 61st Annual Homecoming on June 2 at the park area of the cemetery.
The annual homecoming continues to provide an opportunity for families to get together and enjoy a meal and good company for an afternoon. Families hold reunions in conjunction with this event and Homecoming continues to allow the community a time to get together visit and reminisce in a peaceful setting. This day is one day away from busy schedules to come together as a community in remembrance of those who have passed.
The meal will begin at approximately 11:30 a.m. and will be catered by Mopsie’s Catering. The Liberty Hill Cemetery began their tradition with Rudy Mikeska’s Catering in 1968. It was the first large catering job for them. Mopsie Mikeska Cavo continued the business after Rudy’s death. Mopsie has retired this year and the family tradition will continue with Bobby Cavo, Mopsie’s son, taking the catering reins and continuing to provide great barbecue for the large crowd. The meal will consist of bar-becue brisket, sausage, beans, coleslaw, condiments and tea. The cost is $9 per plate. Desserts are not provided with the meal. There may be desserts available for purchase in limited supply and you may bring your own as well.
An important part of the homecoming is the reading of those having passed over the last year. For many, this is a part of the closure associated with the passing of a loved one. This will be followed by a speech given by 26th District Court Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield of Williamson County.
Local historian Gary Spivey will have historical photographs on display and a DVD of old Liberty Hill following Judge Stubblefield’s speech. This allows many individuals an opportunity to reminisce and others to learn about the history of the place they have come to call home.
Musical entertainment will be provided by Emily Cousins.
Books will also be available for purchase, which include a history of the Liberty Hill Cemetery as well as history about the community. 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 fundraiser for the association and while nothing is added to the price of the meal, donations are always welcome and may be made payable to the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association.
