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.
UPDATE: Our grounds and office staff will continue to be here taking care of families, but we are implementing a few temporary changes -
We are essentially back to normal operations. We continue to encourage face masks, social distancing, and limiting numbers attending services or approaching the grave.
Stay tuned for further updates and stay safe!
