Cemetery annual Maintenance Clean Up
Over the years, many gravesites at the Whitecourt Cemetery have had items left in remembrance at the gravesite which hinder our maintenance department’s ability to maintain the Cemetery grounds to the highest standards possible.
The Town of Whitecourt requests that all ornaments, decorations, plants and other personal items placed on or around plots be removed by July 31, 2018. Removal of items not attached to a monument/headstone (excluding fresh flowers) will allow for efficient year round maintenance, and a consistent aesthetic throughout the Cemetery.
If you know of a friend or family member’s gravesite which has any of the above noted items added to it, the Town of Whitecourt would like to give you this opportunity to remove the objects prior to the general clean-up of the Cemetery grounds.
Personal items left on or around plots after July 31, 2018 that hinder our ability to maintain the grounds, will be removed from the site and held at the Town Shop until the end of December 2018 for pickup. Unclaimed items will be discarded after this date.
Our intention is to continue to provide proper care to the cemetery grounds and to maintain the respectful decorum that is expected by all residents. By creating an environment that is consistent for all plots, we will be able to provide a peaceful area for everyone to enjoy.
