The McPherson Cemetery will be collecting and disposing of Memorial Day decorations on Monday, June 6.

If the flowers or decorations are placed in permanent vases or flowerpots, they will not be removed unless they are damaged or faded. Artificial flowers in the ground on either side of a gravesite will also be allowed to remain so long as they do not interfere with mowing.

However, all decorations positioned in front of markers or gravestones will be removed to allow for mowing and grounds maintenance.

Anyone wanting to collect personal cemetery decorations should do so before personnel start work on Monday. Any questions can be directed to the McPherson Cemetery office at 620-245-2568.
