Bobby Tucker, Gamble, Ford and Donovan are members of the cemetery board.
Carl Brooks recently restored the Manila Cemetery entrance archway that has been down for several years. Board members expressed their appreciation to Mr. Brooks for his workmanship and to former Manila resident, J.D. Forsythe of California, who offered to pay to have the archway restored.
Members of the board said the new part of the cemetery has been marked and plotted giving Manila over 1,600 more grave sites. Clifford Peyton is in charge of selling grave sites.
