April Cemetery Clean-up for all Albany Diocesan Cemeteries
Apr. 03, 2017 — 8am - 4pm

Winter decoration clean-up for our cemeteries and lots will begin on Monday, April 3rd, 2017 at all Albany Diocesan Cemeteries. Lot owners are requested to remove any decorations they wish to save before April 3rd, 2017. Fresh cut flowers in an approved vase are always permitted provided they are in good condition. All other decorations will be removed during the cleanup. The cleanup of all cemeteries takes some time, and depending on weather and the number of burials, may take a week to complete. During the cleanups, cemetery staff removes and discards all items from graves. Groundskeepers are instructed to leave any permitted new seasonal decoration that appears to be newly placed and is in accordance with the current Cemetery Rules and Regulations. Of course, this is a judgment call for our staff, so it is better to wait until after the cleanup to place decorations. Items placed in violation of cemetery rules and regulations or in disrepair may be removed and discarded at any time. Visit our website at http://www.capitaldistrictcemeteries.org/about-us/rules-and-regulations for more information regarding our cemeteries decoration regulations. Thank you for helping to keep our cemeteries beautiful! Read More
