The cemetery staff will begin removing old arrangements Wednesday, 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

All artificial arrangements must be in a vase, hanging device, or on a monument saddle. Permanently mark the deceased 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/or trimming. Please be aware of updated rules and regulations.
