Please take some time to clean up your family members’ graves in the St. James Cemetery. There are many Christmas decorations that need to be thrown away or taken off of the graves before we start mowing for the spring/summer/fall seasons. We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer some time to help clean up litter and take old/broken decorations off of the graves, or pull weeds around the monument in the Resurrection Section of the cemetery. We welcome any and all help. As a reminder, NO GLASS ITEMS are allowed at the cemetery and must be removed. Glass, plastic, or resin items can be very hazardous for those mowing and weed whacking around the graves, so please take precautions when placing these items (no glass items at all, please).

Thank you for helping to keep our cemetery clean and safe.
