Grounds OPEN!

Please Read:


 Rains earlier in the year damaged our storm sewer system, and heavy rain floods the roads.  To protect the grounds as well as visitors and their cars, when the roads flood we close the grounds.   Visitors will be able to park at the office and walk in, or walk in from Brown Rd.  DO NOT WALK THROUGH STANDING WATER - you may step into a sewer opening or pothole and hurt yourself.  Your safety and protecting the property are our primary concerns.   We are working to fix the storm sewers, it is a complex and expensive process that will take considerable time, and we appreciate your cooperation and patience.   


If there has been rain in the area, call during office hours if you are concerned whether the grounds are open, and the most responsive place to find updates when the grounds are closed is our Facebook page.


COVID-19 UPDATE

Temporary Measures to Protect our Customers, Visitors, and Staff

 

UPDATE:  Our grounds and office staff will continue to be here taking care of families, but we are implementing a few temporary changes -


1.  The office is closed except by appointment, and we ask that appointments be limited to the Next of Kin and one supporter.  Again, our staff is present, the phones are monitored during normal office hours, but to come in please make an appointment.
2.  We will not be holding indoor services at Huntington Chapel for now.  When possible, we ask you
limit the number present for graveside services to 10 people or fewer.  
3.  Public events are being evaluated 2-4 weeks out and being cancelled or rescheduled.  Please call if you have a question about an event. May events are all cancelled or postponed at this time.
4.  The grounds are open as normal, and the grounds and security staff will continue their work.


Stay tuned for further updates and stay safe!
