The Buckland Union Cemetery Association Inc. will hold its annual spring cleanup on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to noon. Volunteers are needed to help remove sticks, seasonal decorations, dead flowers and wreaths, broken items, and debris in our four cemeteries (Trow, Taylor, Center, and Upper City).

Please join us when we convene in front of the Mary Lyon Church on Upper Street, Buckland, at 10 a.m. this Saturday. Bring rakes, leaf blowers, tarps, clippers, etc., if you have them. Per its rules and regulations, the association has the right to remove any frames, containers, baskets, decorations, etc., of any type at any time at their discretion if the family/owner has not done so when these items become unsightly.

As we prepare for Memorial Day, the association’s goal is to keep our cemeteries clean, free of clutter, and safe for visitors who have loved ones buried on the property. Thank you in advance for helping if you can.

Laurie Benoit

Board of directors president, Buckland Union Cemetery Inc., Buckland
