Easter Decoration Removal

Eglington flowers

We will begin clearing Easter cemetery decorations at our cemeteries. We typically clear all holiday decorations two weeks after each holiday as the cemeteries need to be mowed every week. Please take this into account when placing decorations and do not place Mother’s day decorations out early. Remember to collect wanted items. We will begin in the flush memorial sections. This also begins the mowing season. Please pull any rocks placed into the 18″ area in front of your Monument and remove all Farmers Hooks.

Please check with the cemetery office, we are holding craft Items from Easter, shepherd’s hooks, solar lights, crosses and any item that could be injurious to the monuments, visitors or workers. We will hold these items for 30 days to allow the Lot Owners to retrieve them. Please don’t place the items back out onto the property it is for all our protection and against the rules which, for safety are strictly enforced especially during the mowing season. We thank you for understanding and your cooperation at this time.

Remember Rocks and Farmer’s hooks can be injurious to both the yard crew and the Monuments if hit by a weed whackers or mowers.

Winter Snow Stick Installation

Attention all lot owners: Please be advised every year in November we spend hours installing the snow sticks/poles next to the survey plates in every section of every cemetery. The snow poles give us the ability to locate graves and layout footings for monument installations and interments during the winter season. The last couple of years people have pulled the snow sticks/ poles and tossed them on the ground. This decimates hours of work, and if it snows there is no way to place them back in the ground in their proper location. The only time we need them is during the snow season. While we understand some people may find them unsightly they are a necessary part of our job. Please refrain from removing the snow poles as this creates confusion and can delay our daily operations. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
