Winter Information


If there is more than 2 ½ inches of snow on the ground (this will be at the discretion of the Cemetery Sexton), the cemetery will be closed.  It is very difficult to maneuver the roads when they are clear, much less covered with snow.  Of course, we will accommodate burials during this time as needed.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your understanding.

If you have planted Hosta, bushes, flowers, etc. that are now overgrown and out of control, they will be pruned or removed if they are interfering with the foundation of your loved ones monument.  Rules & Regulations (updated regularly by the Board of Directors) are posted behind the sign at the Cleveland Avenue Entrance.  We appreciate your understanding.  The everyday maintenance at the cemetery is quite expensive.  Please remember to use your “Cemetery Collection Envelope”.  Thank You!
