The Officers and Directors of the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association wish to invite you to the 64th Annual Homecoming on June 5, 2016. Rain or shine this is one day out of our busy schedules to take the time to see friends and family members at a friendly gathering and come together as a community in remembrance of those that have passed. The address is 16101 West Hwy 29 and we will be at the park area of the cemetery. If you are coming maybe for the first time in a while our community has continued to grow and things might look a little different.
The meal will begin at approximately 11am and will be catered by Mopsie’s Catering. It will consist of bar-b-cue brisket, sausage, beans, coleslaw, condiments and tea. The cost is $12.00 per plate. Please bring tables and chairs as ours have become very limited.
There are several events that go on during the day. This year we are pleased to have former Williamson County 26th District Court Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield as a guest speaker. Judge Stubblefield has a wealth of knowledge of Liberty Hill history and he is sure to provide this knowledge in a very entertaining way. Another important part of the homecoming is the reading of those having passed since our homecoming last year. For many this is a part of the closure associated with the passing of a loved one. This year we are again fortunate to have 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. Cade can be found performing bluegrass, rockabilly and honky-tonk music with his band, The Sawdust Stompers, at venues all over the state of Texas on the weekends. During the week he plays gospel and children’s music at churches, schools and daycares in and around his hometown. He has several albums for sale and a large and varied songbook from which to choose. Cade is bound to play something you will enjoy. This year both his daughters Maelynn and C’Lee will be singing with him. Gary Spivey and his daughter Kandice Wright will also have pictures on display from years past of “old” Liberty Hill. History is often lost in a community without the dedication of individuals interested in its preservation. Extra pictures may be available for those interested in the past and if you have questions about Liberty Hill “Homecoming” is a great place to get answers.
We will also have books available for purchase, which have 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.
Please remember Homecoming is our only formal fundraiser for the association. If you can’t make it to this year’s homecoming and would like to send a donation you may send a check payable to the Liberty Hill Cemetery Association at P. O. Box 73, Liberty Hill, TX 78642. Your donations are greatly appreciated and are what keep our cemetery in the conditions you have come to expect and help with future projects to upgrade the cemetery. We look forward to seeing you there!
