The ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has forced many events to be canceled or postponed. The Drakes Fork Cemetery Committee released a statement in regards to their 2020 Homecoming event.

“Due to the fast spreading COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Drakes Fork Cemetery Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Homecoming set for May 2, 2020. With heavy hearts, we regret having to make this decision, but we feel that it is in the best interest of the families and friends who attend our homecoming event. 

We are in compliance with Louisiana and federal guidelines. The health and safety of our loved ones of all ages are our main concern. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by our public officials. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and want to thank you for your support, patience and understanding on this very important matter.
