CEMETERIES TRULY DESERVE OUR SPECIAL CARING AND REGULAR ATTENTION
When you think about all of the places that help make our towns and communities a part of our daily lives, there is one type of location that isn't a place where we go to entertain ourselves, dine-out, exercise or just relax. Yet, that location is more sacred and important to us than all of the others.
That location is our community's cemeteries.
Cemeteries are our most sacred grounds where our loved ones, friends, Veterans and community leaders all rest for eternity. It is all of our responsibilities to assure that their eternal "home" is clean and groomed showing our greatest respect and remembrance.
Fall and Spring Clean-ups at our local cemeteries allow us to assist cemetery staff, where possible, by maintaining gravesites dear to us in order to keep them uncluttered, safe and clean, showing our deepest respect for those that reside there. Beyond those gravesites personal to us, assisting in clean-up throughout the cemetery truly provides a valuable service and adds to the sheer beauty of our community at large. Additionally, cemetery clean-ups provide an important and time sensitive opportunity for family members to retrieve any special decorations or remembrances placed on or around their loved ones' gravesite that will be collected and lost if not removed within a certain time period.
CEMETERY CLEAN-UPS CAN BE FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Most cemeteries have regularly scheduled Fall and Spring clean-ups that can be a particularly fun day for the entire family. Getting the family out on a beautiful Fall or Spring day gets everyone away from the TV, computer and electronic games for a while and promotes family bonding while performing a rewarding service. Pack a family lunch and snacks for when everyone takes a break and enjoy that wonderful beauty and serene quiet that can be found in every cemetery. It is a rewarding experience and a great way to teach our kids about reverence and community service.
PLAN ON TAKING PART IN THE NEXT CEMETERY CLEAN-UP
Fall cemetery clean-ups are now being scheduled. Most cemeteries announce their clean-up schedules on their Facebook pages, websites or you can just call the cemetery of your choice to get their clean-up dates. In addition, look for cemetery location signage and notices posted throughout their locations announcing upcoming Clean-ups. Many cemeteries can use our help particularly in the oldest sections of the cemetery where all living family members have passed away and no one is left to help care for the family gravesite. Beyond that situation, it is all of our responsibility, performed out of love and remembrance, to help maintain our loved ones' gravesites and honor the family legacy that we embrace. Your local cemetery will be truly grateful for all of your help.
