In late February, the entire cemetery (including the mausoleums) is cleaned in preparation for the upcoming growing season. All decorations will be removed, whether they are placed on the ground or in vases or on top of monuments. If there is something that you want to keep, please have it removed before this date.

After the spring cleanup in late February, grave decorations can be replaced or new spring decorations can be added to your loved one's grave after March 15.

November

The day after Thanksgiving is a very important date for the cemetery, a time for the cemetery to get ready for the winter months. This is major clean up time for the entire cemetery including the mausoleums. All decorations will be removed, whether they are placed on the ground or in vases or on top of the monument. If there is something you want to keep, please have them removed before Thanksgiving Day.

December

Starting December 1st winter decorations may be placed on your loved one's grave.

The first Saturday in December, a local Boy Scout Troop, places holiday wreaths on over 1200+ graves. This is truly a sight. The 1200+ wreaths makes our cemetery festive and beautiful for the holidays.

On Christmas Eve volunteers place over 4,600 luminaries throughout cemetery. The luminaries are lit at 5pm and continue to burn until midnight (depending on weather). This is a wonderful sight to share with friends and family.
