Mowing season is under way for Winlock Cemetery and below are a list of rules and regulations Lewis County Cemetery District 1 would like residents to be aware of.
- All flowers are to be placed in vases on the headstone settings or on the headstones themselves. Please note, as flowers wilt, they will be removed and discarded.
- Please do not leave glass jars with flowers in them as these are a hazard when mowing and will be thrown away.
- Please do not use artificial flowers during the mowing season as the wires can get caught in the mower and cause damage.
- Please refrain from leaving anything of value on gravesites such as statues, pictures, and other times as the cemetery is publicly accessible and has no security means to prevent theft of such items.
Additionally, some may have noticed certain areas of the cemetery are in need of landscaping and the Board of Commissioners for District 1 has voted to undertake much-needed pruning and tree and shrub removal in the near future.
In the absence of a live-in caretaker, those needing help with regarding cemetery facilities, as well as those seeking to purchase lots or with general questions, may call (360) 785-3881.
The Board for District 1 meets the second Thursday of each month and the public is invited to attend these meetings
