2020 Fairview Cemetery Annual Cleanup

2020 Fairview Cemetery Annual Cleanup

Jan 28, 2020

Beginning March 1 Fairview Cemetery Staff will conduct their Annual Cleanup. Cleanup will continue thru the mowing/mulching season. Items that are worn or faded and/or on the ground will be removed.

Mark Your Arrangements: The cemetery office receives several calls during the year looking for flower arrangements that blow away during windy conditions. We hold those items approximately one week next to our storage building. If an identification tag can be affixed to the arrangements (as the name appears on the monument), Cemetery Staff will do their best to see that the arrangement is placed back on the correct monuments.
Inclement Weather: During inclement weather the cemetery gates will be closed until all ice, snow and other debris causing unsafe conditions in the cemetery can be cleared from the roads in the cemetery. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Reminder: Please remember that Fairview Cemetery is a cemetery. The staff at Fairview Cemetery has the utmost respect and concern for all friends and loved ones buried here. We expect the citizens of this community to feel the same way.
