For the last several years it has been the dream of the Arledge Ridge Cemetery Association to build a pavilion at the cemetery for graveside services and Homecoming Memorial. We have plans to build a 30X40 structure that will be built on the west side of Hwy. 78 in the new part of the cemetery on the south end. We just recently sold the one-acre plot and old church building.  Even after the sale of the plot, we need additional funds to complete the project.  We are establishing a building fund and asking for donations.  Hopefully, the project can be completed by summer.

Maintenance costs of the cemetery continue to increase and the sale of plots continue to decrease.  This is mainly because more and more people are cremating.  Therefore, the cemetery association depletes its annual budget that comes from donations each year.  Annual donations no longer cover the cost to maintain and beautify the cemetery in the way our loved ones deserve.

Our future goal, if fund raising is sufficient, is to also build a memorial for veterans.  Please consider donating to this worthy cause.  We cannot do this without your help!  You may make your checks payable to the Arledge Ridge Cemetery Building Fund and mail to:  Gail Brown, 586 CR 3345, Ladonia, TX 75449.  If you have questions you may contact her at 903-450-6197

If you want to be added to the Arledge Ridge Cemetery mailing list please contact Gail at the address or phone number above.

Thank you so much.
