When, in the judgment of the trustees of any association of persons who are acting as a cemetery association, whether incorporated or unincorporated, and have purchased and improved land for cemetery purposes, the welfare of all concerned in the lands purchased and improved would be subserved by transferring such lands and improvements and other assets of such association to another association incorporated under the laws of this state for cemetery purposes, said trustees shall call a meeting of the association by giving notice of such meeting for two consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which said cemetery is located, specifying the place, time, and object of such meeting. A majority of the members of such association shall constitute a quorum. If by a majority vote of the members of such association the trustees are authorized to convey and transfer such lands and improvements and other assets to a corporation so organized for cemetery purposes and electing to accept such transfer, said trustees may execute a deed of conveyance and transfer of said lands, improvements, and other assets to said corporation. If the members of such association are its lot owners, and notice of such meeting has been given as provided by this section, not less than fifteen members shall constitute a quorum, and the conveyance and transfer of the lands, improvements, and other assets may be authorized by the vote of two thirds of the members present at the meeting.
After such transfer the corporation to which it was made shall carry out the objects for which the original association was formed and shall apply any moneys received by it from said original association in laying out, preserving, protecting, and embellishing said cemetery.
The rights of lot owners in the cemetery ground of the original association are not affected by this section or by any action taken under it.
