Cemetery clean up set

MONROE TOWNSHIP — Residents and families are advised that the 2018 Annual fall clean up for Maple Hill Cemetery and all other Monroe Township cemeteries will take place the week of Oct. 29 by cemetery staff.

All decorations that are to be saved must be removed by Oct. 28. Fall items may be put back on gravesites Nov. 5. Be advised that all artificial arrangements must be in a non-glass vase, hanging device, or a monument saddle. Please permanently mark the deceased’s name and contact person on the bottom of a saddle so identification can be made if it is blown off the monument. The cemetery prohibits the placement of landscape rocks around monuments, glass containers, wire, toys and figurines. These are maintenance and safety issues and interfere with mowing and or trimming. These items will be removed.

Quilted works on display

TROY — Enjoy the quilted works of art created by Lisa Hoblit at Brukner Nature Center through Dec. 16. Hoblit uses intuitive and freeform shapes as a means of artistic self-expression, using the natural world as inspiration to create her own designs.

The artist believes in recycling, reusing, and repurposing materials, using unwanted sheets, discontinued upholstery samples, discarded button-down shirts, and leftover scraps from previous projects.

The exhibit is fee with paid admission to the Nature Center.

A portion of the sales of the quilts will help support the mission of wildlife conservation.
