Reject the $800 burial fee for the Wimauma Cemetery
Please join us to reject the proposed $800 burial fee, an immediate $450 increase for residents to be buried in the Wimauma Cemetery, located at 6012 Edina Street in Wimauma. This cemetery has been the resting place for generations of African Americans who have lived in this quiet town.
The present burial cost for this cemetery is $350 for current residents and $500 for non-residents. The proposed immediate increase to $800 is financially out of reach for many citizens and will prohibit many current and former residents from being buried in the town they know and love. More importantly, it will prevent those who desire to be buried in the Wimauma Cemetery from being laid to rest with their deceased family members.
We resist the proposed $800 burial fee!
