Decorations are meant to honor the dead and when tastefully done can make the entire cemetery look beautiful. It is always good to remember that no family owns land or a grave in our cemetery. Families have purchased a “right of burial”.
- October 15th –All decorations must be removed by this date including
- November 15th– Winter decorations may be put out after this date.
No plantings are allowed. No glass vases, vigil lights, glass urns, lawn decorations or anything made of breakable material is allowed. All decorations must attach to the monument or placed as close to the cement base as possible to be out of the way for mowing and grass trimming.
In the Columbarium area, no flowers or plants, real or artificial, are permitted.
