A number of parish volunteers from the Cemetery Committee went out recently and removed all the flowers and decorations from the graves. Notice of this cleanup was published in the parish bulletin for 2 weeks before the project began. All flowers have been discarded but a number of other types of decorations were boxed up and will be available in the cemetery until December 31st, after which all leftovers will be discarded. Those items were put in boxes and can be found at the far end of the cemetery opposite the main gates. There is a large American flag on the fence back there and the boxes of decorations can be found on the ground underneath. Please come pick up anything that you might want to keep.
PLEASE NOTE: Complete removal of all flowers and decorations is now scheduled each year on February 1st, July 1st and October 1st. Please note these dates and remove anything you value from the cemetery before each clean up date.
Below are some pictures of items that have been removed
