Residents are being reminded to remove decorations from the grass areas around the gravestones at Oakland and St. Mary’s Cemeteries in Manchester.
Manchester Cemetery President Dennis Meisgeier says they’ve started enforcing this policy once again to help maintain the cemeteries.
Meisgeier says there are signs posted at both cemeteries asking that all decorations not attached to the monument or sitting on the side cement foundation be removed by two weeks after Memorial Day.
Meisgeier says they’re asking everyone to remove all summer decorations at the cemeteries by October 15th and all winter decorations by April 1st.
