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 (flowers, statues, etc.) by October 1, 2022. [Please note that the cleanup period is beginning two weeks earlier.] Any items not removed by October 1st will be disposed of by cemetery staff, and any perennials found on gravesites will be cut down to ground level. With over 29,400 graves to maintain, the support of families who observe the cemetery rules is greatly appreciated.
Winter decorations should not be placed until November 15, 2022. 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 of the website by visiting www.manitowoc.org/evergreencemetery. An online Burial Search program can be found at www.manitowoc.org/evergreen.
