Decoration cleanup, please read the attached document below for important information about clean up of broken, tattered, and unapproved memorials.

Please click here for information about approved decorations.  Many people are placing unapproved decorations which are causing a hazzard to our mowers.  Many people are not cleaning up their area one foot in front of the headstone.  There are broken, tattered and prohibited articles which will be removed and disposed of without notification.  Please take some time to remove the items listed on the flyer before we find it necessary to clean up.  Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Cemetery Spring Clean Up to begin March 1st, 2018
