Fall Clean Up at Palmer Cemetery 

Rain date for clean up will be October 11th, 2014 at 9am 

The next clean up at Palmer Cemetery will be held on Saturday, October 4th, 2014 at 9am. Rain date will be October 11th, 2014. We will concentrate on the pavements around the exterior of the cemetery and the paths inside. It is the responsibility of the family of those buried here to maintain the grave of their loved ones. If you decorate a grave, please do not leave the decorations deteriorate on the grave. To those who do care for the graves of their loved ones, we appreciate your help in maintaining and caring for our historic cemetery. Please coensider making a financial contribution to the cemetery. Even a small donation helps offset the expenses we have here. We will have spent aprroximately $40,000 for the recent tree work and grass cutting. We need the community's support to continue the care of our HISTORIC CEMETERY.

Please Do Not bring your dog into the cemetery. Please be considerate and pick up after your dog if you walk it around the cemetery. Thanks!

Palmer Cemetery is NOT a Perpetual Care Cemetery. We do our best to maintain the grounds with the financial donations we receive, but a good deal of the work has to be done by volunteers to save money. We will do our best to straighten and reset headstones, but it is the responsibility of the family to maintain the grave site. We realize that most of oldest families have moved away and may not even know they have family buried here, so we do our best to straighten or lift a stone. Some of the larger stones need a small crane to lift, and a new foundation to set the stone on. The stones are sinking or falling mainly due to weather conditions (rain, snow and freezing temps ). We can only do so much and need help. Small donation from the community will go along way in getting things done here. Please consider making a financial donation to help us maintain our historic cemetery.
