Memorial Day reminder at Chadron Greenwood Cemetery

Posted May 25, 2023 7:25 PM

By City of Chadron 

During the mowing season in Greenwood Cemetery, flowers, floral arrangements, or ornaments of any kind are only allowed in the containers that are attached to the marker base and provided for that purpose.

Exceptions to the above are the following:

• Three days before Memorial Day and three days after;

• During a funeral, and three days after.

Flowers may be placed outside of the grave marker base three days prior to Memorial Day on Thursday, May 25, 2023. All items remaining outside of the marker base will be removed by cemetery personnel on Friday, June 2, 2023.

If you anticipate you will not be able to return in this time period and would like your arrangement saved for an additional seven days (ten days total following Memorial Day), flower tags will be available at the Greenwood Cemetery sexton’s building. You may write your name on the back of the tag and attach it to your arrangement. All arrangements with tags will be stored alongside the shop building for one week for you to pick up.

Thank you for helping keep our cemetery beautiful!
