Fairmount Cemetery’s staff will clean the burial grounds Friday, Jan. 14, removing flowers and other items from graves so the property can be cleaned and trimmed.
Those who want to preserve items should remove them from gravesites before the end of the day this Friday, Jan. 7. Items may be returned to the cemetery beginning Friday, Jan. 28. Items left at gravesites will be picked up and held until Thursday, Jan. 27, for residents to claim. Unclaimed items will be disposed of beginning Jan. 28.
Lot owners are reminded that flowers should be placed only to the sides or in cradles on top of monuments. This allows for maintenance of gravesites.
