March 2018….The new information sign has been installed at the
Stockton Chinese Cemetery in French Camp.
The current major project for the Stockton Chinese Cemetery is the “Heavenly Patio”, a small raised park area on the southwest part of the cemetery. The park will have benches for guests to rest as they visit their ancestors at the cemetery. The center of the park area will display a stone pagoda. The Heavenly Patio will be guarded by two large stone fu dogs. CBA has a GO FUND ME account for the fu dogs and the cemetery committee is hoping to purchase them soon.
The Stockton Chinese Cemetery is constantly maintaining and upgrading the grounds. These volunteers are strengthening and adding new signs protecting the grass area.
2017 was a great year for the CBA Cemetery Committee! Fundraising provided a new Garton Tractor and a storage container for the tractor. Many people donated but the Cemetery Committee is particularly grateful for the donations of Mae Lee. The new tractor has many uses at the cemetery. It helps dump trash. It helped fix a fence. It helps disc weeds in the lot besides the cemetery. CBA is very grateful to the community for their financial support.
