Spring cemetery clean-up announced


NEWBERRY TOWNSHIP — Spring cemetery clean-up will run from March 1-14. Please remove all decorations that you wish to save by March 14 in all cemeteries maintained by Newberry Township. The cemetery staff will begin removing old arrangements Thursday, March 15. New spring arrangements in vases attached to monuments or spring saddles will not be removed. Other new arrangements may be placed March 30.

Newberry Township cemeteries are:

Highland — High Street, Covington

Greenville Creek — Buckneck Road, Bradford

Friedens — Corner of Versailles and Bradford-Bloomer Road

Union Church — Union Church Road, Covington

Arnold — State Route 36, Covington

Priest — McMaken Road, Covington

Johnson — State Route 41, Covington

Lutheran Church — Miami-Shelby County Line Road, Covington.

All artificial arrangements must be in a vase, hanging device, or on a monument saddle. Please permanently mark the deceased’s name and a contact person on the bottom of a saddle so identification can be made if it is blown off the monument. Any arrangement that is a maintenance problem will be disposed of.

With mowing season soon approaching, cemetery rules prohibit glass containers, wire, toys and figurines that interfere with mowing and trimming. Please be aware of updated rules and regulations.
