According to the cemetery's rules and regulations, all flowers except those in vases or on markers are removed one week after Memorial Day due to mowing, cutting and other maintenance needs. All winter decorations are picked up after March 1.
``We only pick up twice a year,'' said cemetery supervisor Mitch Young.
People who want decorations up longer can take them down themselves after Memorial Day and then put them back up after workers have removed others in the cemetery. They will then stay up until workers remove winter decorations after March 1.
