May 2024 Storm Clean-Up

7/16/2024 UPDATE

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to provide an update regarding the lasting impacts from the storm that occurred on May 28th, 2024. Our cemetery has faced significant challenges due to the storm, including the following:

  • Tree Damage: Many of our trees were destroyed during the storm. Although the clean up of debris has been done, there are still several trees that have to be removed from the park. 
  • Building Flooding: A few of our buildings experienced flooding due to the storm. To date, the RMC repairs have been completed as well as the event center. The funeral home is still under construction in certain areas that are being remodeled from the flooding that took place as well as measures being taken to prevent future flooding. 
  • Irrigation Issues: The storm and flooding damaged all of our irrigation systems. We have been actively trying to overcome these issues with the necessary repairs so we can begin irrigating the cemetery however, this has proven to be the biggest obstacle to overcome.  

We have been actively working to resolve these issues through various vendors. Specifically, we are addressing pump and electricity-related problems, which have combined to create the current irrigation situation.

 Rest assured that we are diligently working to restore normal operations.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenges. We remain committed to maintaining the cemetery’s integrity and ensuring a positive experience for all.
