Cemetery spring cleanup May 4
The Cemetery Commission is set to conduct its annual spring cleanup Sunday, May 4 at 9 a.m., beginning in East Cemetery.
During the cleanup, the commission removes fallen limbs, brown wreaths and brown flowers, debris and trash. New wreaths, flowers and decorations will not be removed.
If residents are concerned about any items at their loved ones’ gravesites, they should remove them before the cleanup. If residents notice broken decorations or brown flowers or wreaths on the gravesites, they can feel free to remove them.
The walk-in gates are open year round at all of the cemeteries. The commission will try to have the larger drive-in gates open in advance of the cleanup. If this is not possible due to weather, all cemeteries will officially open May 15.
For more information, contact the town clerk’s office at 878-5121.
