It’s Fall Cleanup time at Manitowoc’s Evergreen Cemetery. The Cemetery Division asks your help in clearing all summer decorations in order to help maintain Evergreen Cemetery’s park-like beauty. Lot owners are respectfully asked to remove their summer decorations by October 15, 2021. Any items not removed by October 15th will be disposed of by cemetery staff, and any perennials found on gravesites will be cut down to ground level. With over 29,000 graves to maintain, the support of families who observe the cemetery rules is greatly appreciated.
Winter decorations should not be placed until November 15, 2021. Decorations should be kept close to the marker, so as to minimize damage from snow blowing for a grave opening in the nearby area. During winter months, artificial flowers should be put in a container instead of being placed into the ground.
The complete set of Rules & Regulations can be found on the Pricing & Policies page for Evergreen Cemetery on the City of Manitowoc website (www.manitowoc.org.) An online Burial Search program can be found at www.manitowoc.org/evergreen.
Individuals can sign up to receive text or e-mail notices about the cleanup and other important items by clicking on the “Notify Me” button on the City of Manitowoc’s homepage and following the directions to subscribe to Evergreen Cemetery News Flashes. Cleanup notices are sent approximately two weeks prior to the deadline for removing items.
For additional information, call the Cemetery Division at 686-3570 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday or e-mail the cemetery office at email@example.com.
