Decorations and Flowers

Our cemetery understands that placing flowers on a loved one's grave is an important tradition of remembrance and respect.  You may place items onto a grave following the schedule below.  We also provide the annual option of placing a regulation flower bed or box onto a grave for your enjoyment from spring to fall.  Please review information for our flower beds and boxes.  
 
In order to maintain a pristine cemetery, decoration and flower rules are enforced year round and grounds are cleared regularly. No glass or breakable items are allowed at any time on the grounds.
  

Please review grounds regulations.    

Note:  The cemetery regularly clears the grounds as detailed in the grounds regulations.  The cemetery is not responsible for vandalized, stolen, or damaged items.
