SHAFTSBURY — October marks fall cleanup time at cemeteries in the town of Shaftsbury.

The town's Cemetery Superintendent is asking for those who decorate any gravesites in the town cemeteries to remove all decorations by Nov. 1. Any decorations not removed by that date will be respectfully disposed of, and perennials will be cut down or trimmed to ground level.

As a reminder, decorations should always be kept close to the headstones so as to not hinder the graveyard maintenance team.
