****** Important Announcement ********

2022 Clean-up Day
Friends of the Cemetery, The Madisonville Cemetery Association has a cleanup day scheduled for Saturday, May 14. The Board and any interested volunteers are asked to meet at 8:00AM, near the Information Center. We will spend a few minutes splitting up into teams and we will go over the restrictions that have approved by the Association membership. The main purpose for the cleanup day is to pick up any trash, limbs, old flower arrangements and any items that are in violation of the Association's restrictions. The main reason for these restrictions is simple...it's a matter of safety. Our growing season is in full swing and we have already mowed the cemetery three times this year. Items such as glass vases and bottles could easily shatter and pose serious safety issues for the mowers and string trimmers. Multiple floral arrangements on a grave make it almost impossible to mow or weedeat. The results are unsightly and the unmowed areas are a haven for snakes and fire ants. Even though our restrictions are very clear, there are still several instances where patrons choose to ignore them. We don't enjoy enforcing these restrictions but they have been voted on and approved by the Association's general membership, over the years at our Annual meetings. I hope everyone realizes that we are not doing this to be hurtful. Rules are rules and it's not fair for a majority of our patrons to follow them, while a small number of people don't respect them. We have put an emormous amount of effort into improving the Cemetery and we ask for your cooperation and understanding as we go forward. If you have a cemetery plot that contains items that are against our cemetery restrictions, I urge you to remove them before Saturday morning or during Saturday's cleanup day. Our decorating restrictions are posted in the information Center and can be viewed on our website, in both English and Spanish, at : www.madisonvillecemetery.com/restrictions Our next Board meeting is scheduled for 6:00 PM on Monday, May 16, 2022, at the Kimbro Center. The public is always invited.
Thank You,
