Cemetery Floral Regulations

Matthew 5:4. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

  1. Only annual plants are allowed in a space of one-foot depth in front of the monument.

  2. No artificial flowers are permitted. Evergreens, bushes, mounds, and trees are not allowed.

  3. An eternal battery operated light or solar light is permitted. Only one light per plot. St. Anthony's is not responsible for any breakage.

  4. Enclosures, stones, railings, shepard's hooks, memorabilia, statues, and candles are strictly prohibited. Any of these objects can be picked up and hurled by mowing equipment, making them a hazard to visitors and the cemetery staff. They will be removed and disposed of immediately, without notice.

  5. Wreaths, blankets, palm crosses or flowers may be allowed for the duration of the holiday season, but will be removed thereafter. Christmas wreaths or blankets will be picked up four (4) weeks after Christmas. Palm crosses will be removed one (1) week after Easter.

  6. For all other holidays, fresh flowers may be placed three (3) days before and will remain for one (1) week after or when they become unsightly.

  7. American flags may only be placed Memorial Day through the 4th of July, Labor Day through September 11th, and Veterans Day. The flags may be placed three (3) days prior to the holiday and will be picked up one (1) week after holiday. Flags are to be placed next to monument.

  8. All plants will be removed on November 15th.

  9. St. Anthony's is not responsible for any items.

  10. No pets allowed on cemetery grounds.

 

As a Catholic Cemetery is a sacred place, these requirements assure the sanctity and beauty of the Cemetery.

St. Anthony's Cemetery has a flag dedicated to all veterans, which is located in the center of the cemetery. This flag is flown 365 days a year. There is also a monument erected to our brave men and women who served our country. The monument reads:

This flag pole carries aloft the greatest symbol of freedom ever sewn together was erected by the Naurashank Post 794 of the American Legion dedicated to the brave men and women who answered their countries call in its greatest hours of need and who now lie here at rest here in St. Anthony's Cemetery. May God have mercy on their souls and may the flag they so gallantly defended fly ever high and free.

The Cemetery reserves to itself the right to make changes in rule and regulations as is necessary for the proper performance of its operations and to do this without notice.
