EXCEPTIONS: All recent burials have a 30-day grace period for the purpose of facilitating the mourning process.
All other decorations: sprays, cones, wood objects, plastic, foam, & items on wire stands will be allowed as a temporary adornment, 1 week before to 1 week after the holidays, which are MotherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day, Memorial Day, Fathers Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.
No personal plantings will be allowed at any time.
No curbing, borders, mulching, lighting, or any decorating beyond # 1, 2, & 3 above will be allowed. The maintenance staff will remove any such improvements immediately.
The Cemetery reserves the right to remove any item placed that hinders maintenance or presents a danger to the staff or others. This could include, but is not limited to, any glass, porcelain, statuary, concrete, plastic, or similar substances that could break and be thrown by mowers or trimmers.
Every spring and fall the cemetery will publish an ad in the local paper indicating a date, usually mid March and November, when we will remove all decorations. We will use our best discretion concerning those that appear to be recently placed, but all “seasonal" items will be removed with a waiting period of about 4 weeks before they are discarded.
