As the removal of leaves at Oakwood Cemetery will begin soon, it is being requested that all non-adhered decorations be removed as soon as possible.
Pots with flowers on foundations and monument bases as well as saddles (flower arrangements on top of monuments) do not need to be removed.
Winter/Christmas decorations may be placed after Nov. 15. Do not place wreaths or grave blankets on the graves until after leaf season is over, which depends on Mother Nature and not a calendar date. Grave blankets placed this winter need to be removed by March 1, 2022.
The staff appreciate the family and friends of deceased loved ones who respect the cemetery rules and regulations and in doing so participate in making our community’s cemetery a beautiful and safe place to honor loved ones, according to a news release from the cemetery.
