Calvary Cemetery: Mowing

We are now in full mode mowing season is and we are asking everybody NOT to place any floral arrangements on the ground since it can damage our lawn mower. We suggest you use some shepherd’s hooks to hang your flowers and place them as close as possible to the tombstone or you can also place your flowers on top of the tombstone. Thank you for your understanding
