The Annual AUSTIN BEAN EATIN has come to an end.

At this time of year we all start thinking about the annual Austin Bean Eating, 2018 marked the end of an era for this tradition

The Austin Cemetery Association stated ; History has been kind to us.

The last forty years our historical Austin Cemetery in Cass County, Mo. would have been lost and forgotten, but because of the monetary donations and many tireless hours from our kind community, the historical re-enactment of the Austin Bean Eatin has been an asset for the upkeep of the cemetery. 
The original Austin Bean Eatin (encampment) started by the Civil War Veterans in 1885-1916, thirty-one years.
In 1978 the Austin Cemetery Association started the historical re-enactment as a fundraiser for the upkeep of the cemetery. Last year was our 40th of the Bean Eatin.
Due to the cost of an event such as this, we have decided to end the Austin Bean Eatin at 40 years. 
The Austin Cemetery Association extends our heartfelt gratitude towards each and everyone who donated in anyway toward the cemetery and this event.
Without the Bean Eatin, we now have to rely on our kind community once again for donations towards the upkeep. If you have loved ones buried in the cemetery or would like to make a donation please send to: Austin Cemetery Association 
32001 E. 331st
Garden City, Mo. 64747

Someday in the future we will meet again, reminiscing of the Austin Bean Eatin. 
The 150 homemade pies lined up in a row, the many pans of cornbread, the serving of 146 lbs. of cole slaw, the smell of 150 lbs of beans cooking in the big, black kettles. We will hear the laughter of children and adults playing and visiting. When the music starts our feet will begin to dance…..
However, above all, remember to love one another.
“Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Thank you and God Bless,
Austin Cemetery Association
