City Announces Memorial Day Service, Decoration Policies at City Cemeteries

The City of Bloomington Rose Hill Cemetery will host the annual Veterans Memorial Day service, presented by the American Legion Post #18, at 9 a.m. on May 30.

The American Legion, with assistance from area Scout troops and other volunteers, will place more than 2,300 flags on the graves of veterans at Rose Hill and White Oak Cemeteries on Saturday, May 28. Anyone interested in helping place flags is invited to meet at Rose Hill Cemetery at 8 a.m.

All other Memorial Day decorations must be placed directly on grave monuments or in vases attached to grave monuments. No decorations may be placed on or anchored to the ground. Grave decorations not firmly attached to gravestones will be removed by cemetery staff. The use of glass or ceramic containers or decorations is prohibited, as are shepherd’s hooks.

Cemetery rules and regulations are available at the cemetery office at 930 W. 4th St. For more information about Memorial Day decoration policies, contact Barb Dunbar at 812-349-3498 or
