JUNEAU - The city Parks and Recreation department will have staff available at Evergreen Cemetery to assist in locating grave sites from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Memorial Day.
Beginning Friday through Memorial Day, there also will be vehicle access on Irwin Street, which runs through the middle of the cemetery. Both entrances to Irwin will be open, so exiting will not require turning around on the pathway. Parks and Recreation suggests not pulling vehicles too far off Irwin Street, due to the soft shoulders.
People are asked to clean up any weeds or turf debris left from grave site preparation or plantings. Also, the landscape staff discourages the use of artificial flowers.
For more information, call Parks and Recreation at 586-5226.
