Decorations are removed each April 1 and October 1, and are not returned.  Any headstones or monuments should be places on your space(s) only and allow for enough room to weed whack and mow.  If you have questions regarding the cemetery, or where to place a monument, please contact either the Town Office at 608-223-1104 or Public Works at 608-575-2369.
