Fall cleanup at township cemeteries

GREENVILLE – Fall cleanup will begin immediately through Nov. 15, for all Greenville Township cemeteries. Families and loved ones are asked to remove all decorations that they wish to save by Nov. 15, in all cemeteries maintained by Greenville Township.

Cemetery personnel will begin removing old arrangements that are not in vases which are attached to the markers or monuments. Also to be removed will be all hanging devices such as shepherd hooks, floral arrangements etc. When placing new arrangements on gravesites all arrangements must be in the marker vase (Memorial Gardens Cemetery) or a monument saddle arrangement placed on top of the monument in all other Greenville Township cemeteries. All artificial arrangements must be either in a vase or on a monument saddle. The only exception will be Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Father’s Day. After these listed holidays then all arrangements not in the vases attached to the base monument must be removed within five (5) days after the holiday or arrangements will be removed by cemetery personnel.

Greenville Township maintains the following cemeteries. Memorial Gardens and Newcomer on State Route 118, East Zion located on State Route 36, Emanuel on the New Madison Coletown Road, Martin located on Culbertson Road, Crickbaum at Motorcycle Drive, and Bethel located on Cox Road.
