City Cemetery Clean ups

Seward Parks and Recreation declared last year that 2014 will be proclaimed and celebrated as “the year of the cemetery.” The City is seeking volunteers to work on various projects from documentation to rebuilding headstones or specific site clean ups or repairs.

Community members are encouraged and invited into the conversation regarding voluntary compliance with the cemetery rules, regulations and City Ordinances, set in place for record-keeping and to ease care of the facility. Final resting places are usually provided a given amount of respect in each culture. Toward this end, diverse input is encouraged for the focused clean up.

The 2014 emphasis may or may not include projects such as tree or brush removal, re-setting headstones, turf repair, site clean-up, site leveling and other projects. Private cemeteries such as the Pioneers, American Legion and the Masons are not targeted by the City, as they each have their own capable volunteers.


For more information, contact Director Karin Sturdy at 224-4053 or “Opening Doors in one four”
