Annual Titus Hill Memorial Service
The Annual Titus Hill Memorial Service will be held in the
cemetery at Titusville, New Brunswick at 3:00 pm on the second Sunday
in July - (July 13, 2008). If the weather is unfavourable the
service will be held in the Salina Kirk.
The service will include the Dedication of the Gates which were donated
by the Floyd Brothers and their wives in memory of
family members. Special musical selections will be presented. The
sermon will be given by the Rev. Smith. Ruby Cusack will do the
of Remembrance with the names of those who God called home since the
Annual Memorial Service last year being read and a rose placed in their
by a family member.
This service is a memorial to all the folk who have been buried on this
sandy knoll over the past one hundred and more years.
Last year Ruby Cusack stated: "Since 1962 we have been gathering on a
Sunday in July to honour and remember our loved ones, our friends and
our neighbours - who rest in Titus Hill. We come not to mourn them but
to remember these people who loved and were loved, who enjoyed
life, who had their problems, who suffered hardships and
who like us, too shed tears, in the loss of a loved one."
"Many of the early settlers of this area were laid to rest in Titus
Hill. Through the years their descendants have also chosen this
sandy hill that John Titus gave the Community for a cemetery. It is
cosmopolitan for neighbour sleeps by neighbour in death, as he lived by
his neighbour in life, without regard to creed."
A collection will be taken for the
upkeep of the cemetery.
