Cemetery Etiquette Reminder

Updated

There are a number of basic protocols to follow to show respect for both the living and the deceased in relation to cemeteries in Howick Township:  
• Do not drive off-road vehicles or motorized snow vehicles on the cemetery grounds.
• Keep noise to a minimum. Most people that you will encounter on cemetery grounds are mourning the death of a loved one. If you see a funeral or other service in progress, please be respectful and give them their space.
• Pets must be leashed at all times and owners shall “poop and scoop”.
• Do not litter.
• Do not touch or climb on monuments or remove items from a grave site.

Thank you for your respect.
