New fall arrangements in vases attached to monuments or fall saddles will not be removed. Other new arrangements may be placed Nov. 1. Newberry Township cemeteries are:

All artificial arrangements must be in a vase, hanging device, or on a monument saddle. Please put the deceased name and a contact person on the bottom of a saddle (in a permanent manner) so identification can be made if it is blown off the monument.
