Clean-up of all floral arrangements will be 2 weeks prior to Easter.  Please remove anything you want to keep that might be removed by mistake.  Make sure any decorations are securely attached so they withstand wind, moving & trimming.

Remember NO shrubs or trees are permitted to be planted.

Mowing of the Grounds

Currently the care and maintenance of the grass is contracted out each year to independent mowing companies.  They are contracted for 1 year to mow each cemetery from April through October. When the grass exceeds 3½ inches, the grass shall be mowed by the CONTRACTOR, unless otherwise directed by Lee Township Trustees.
