Cemetery Decorations at Maple Grove

All temporary decorations placed for Memorial Day on and around headstones must be removed before Monday, June 5th, at 8:00 am.  Temporary decorations include: artificial and real flower arrangements, toys and stuffed animals, wreaths, potted plants, flags, figurines not more than 18” in height and hanging iron planters.  Any items left at that time will be removed beginning Monday morning in order to assist the staff in mowing and trimming the cemetery.  

Outside of designated days, the Cemetery Caretaker will remove decorations from any grave space outside of approved periods.  Please see the rules posted at the cemetery office for a complete list of days decorations are permitted.

Cut and artificial flowers are allowed at all times in the cemetery as long as they are maintained in permanently installed receptacles as permitted under the regulations.  The use of glass jars, bottles, tin cans, and the like for receptacles for artificial and cut flowers is strictly prohibited.  At their discretion, cemetery staff will remove withered and faded flowers or artificial flowers once they become unsightly.

Staff works diligently to maintain the cemetery and provide an appropriate resting place for family and loved ones.  Your cooperation in helping them complete that work is appreciated.
