Building Public Support for the Cemetery
Friends of the San Marcos Cemetery was founded in 2003 for the following purposes:
- To help the greater San Marcos community understand the functions, resources, and services of the San Marcos Cemetery;
- To raise funds and provide other assistance in order to improve the facilities and services of the San Marcos Cemetery;
- To encourage, recognize, and support volunteers who assist the San Marcos Cemetery Commission with ongoing projects; and
- To encourage public support of the Cemetery through memorial donations, endowments, bequests, and monetary donations for the beautification and enhancement of the aesthetic environment of the cemetery.
