Please try to come to the annual Bar-B-Q on the July 4th held on the Church grounds across from the Cemetery. Funds collected are used to care for the Oak Grove Cemetery and Church grounds. There are parks north and south of the Cemetery and it is surrounded by million dollar homes. If Austin declares the Cemetery neglected and abandoned, the graves could be moved. We must keep it cleaned.
If you cannot be present for the July 4th event, please send a donation. Any amount will be appreciated and will help keep the Cemetery and Church grounds. Send donations to: Oak Grove Cemetery Association, Attn: Sheila Shannon Lawson, Sec/Trea., 1080 Co. Rd. 223, Giddings, TX 78942. For info call Sheila at 512-247-9196 or Pres. George Milhouse at 512-339-9666. The Church was set on fire several times by vandals and finally burned to the ground. There is only a cement foundation left. Since there are no services held on the Church property, Travis County is taxing the property. They know there are graves by the Church. They do not tax the Cemetery, but they do tax the all property by the Church.
We try to arrive 3 or 4 days early to help clean the grounds, paint tables and set up the kitchen. Volunteers can bring self contained RVs or put up a tent on the ground. There is electricity, water, and a restroom with a shower. On July Fourth, people start coming from all directions. Some have kin in the cemetery and some come for the good food and fellowship. They are all welcome. They are asked for donations, but no one has ever been turned away. Many families bring home cooked food to add to the Bar-B-Q. The ladies bring fresh garden vegetables and wonderful home made cakes, pies and cobblers. One year someone put all the beans in the pot and set them on the stove. They were boiling good, when Rose looked at me and said "who picked and washed the beans?" ... Oops. No one had washed the beans. They were probably the best beans we had ever cooked.
There are tables and benches shaded by live oak trees. You can hear the water of Bull Creek rushing over the limestone creek bed. There is a beautiful limestone bluff behind the Cemetery where water seeps through cracks and green moss grows. It is a site to see. Bull Creek Watershed is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Travis County. Once called Cascade, the name "Bull" is said to have come from the last wild bison shot near the creek in the 1860s. Another source relates the name to the many longhorn cattle that once grazed in the area.
After lunch, we all pitch in to wash up dishes and clean the kitchen. There will be a business meeting then music, entertainment, games and dominoes. The young ones may swim in Bull Creek. Sometime late in the evening we may have home made ice cream with fresh fruit. On July fifth, everyone starts loading up and heading off in different directions to go home. We hope every one will be able to come back next year. It is vital to keep the grounds clean!! Please see my FAMILY Pages List.
