Pre-Memorial Day Cemetery Walk-Through

In early May every year, a few weeks before Memorial Day, I plan to walk through the city-owned cemetery to assess its condition and ask my staff to make any needed repairs before the holiday. Our park maintenance staff, of course, is doing this throughout the year, but I want to make sure I take a regular walk-through as well. All of the lots in our cemetery have been sold for quite some time, so we have an occasional funeral service and regular maintenance needs, but we basically just try to keep the cemetery nice and tidy for mourners and other visitors.
