For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The city of Marshfield has marked Oct. 1 for the removal of items in Hillside Cemetery for fall cleanup.
“All decorations, containers, shepherd hooks, solar lights and other adornments placed at Hillside Cemetery must be removed by October 1st for our annual fall clean-up. Items affixed to headstones may stay, (i.e. grave saddles, monument-mounted vases), but any loose trinkets or items stuck into the ground around the headstone must be removed,” a city release stated.
“Cemetery staff will discard any remaining items left beginning October 1st. We strongly encourage any items/decorations of great monetary or emotional value be protected in a safe place outside of the public cemetery grounds where they cannot be lost, stolen, damaged or removed for any reason.”
