(Neb.)-City Reminds Residents Of Cemetery Regulations

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 05/06/2013 09:56 AM

(Chadron)-With Memorial Day approaching, the City of Chadron Parks and Cemetery Department would like to remind residents and loved ones wishing to honor those who are buried at GreenwoodCemetery, that flowers may be placed outside of the grave marker base beginning on Thursday, May 23, 2013. All items remaining outside of the marker base will be removed by cemetery personnel on Friday, May 31, 2013.
If individuals will not be able to return in this time period, and would like arrangements saved for an additional seven days (10 days total following Memorial Day) identification tags which may be attached to the arrangements will be available in an identified mail box mounted on the cemetery sexton’s building, which is the brick building near the center of the cemetery.  All arrangements with tags will be stored for one week adjacent to the shop building, which is south of the sexton’s building. If they are not retrieved after the 10-day period, they will be disposed of.
Floral arrangements or ornamentation in vases attached to a regulation grave marker base are generally permitted year round. Any variations must be preapproved by working with the cemetery sexton, Scott Schremmer. He can be contacted at the cemetery office, 308/432-0530, or by emailing parks@chadron-nebraska.com
For further information regarding cemetery rules and regulations, log on to www.chadron-nebraska.com and find Cemetery Regulations under the Public Works sidebar.   People can also call City Hall at 432-0500.
