Christmas Wreath Program Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
1) Are the wreath’s fresh?
Yes, the wreath’s are made from fresh, forest grown balsam fir. Each wreath is 25” in diameter, fashioned by hand and decorated with 3 white tipped pine cones, and accented with a velveteen bow. Balsam fir has the best needle retention of all the evergreens.
2) When will the wreath’s be placed in the cemetery? How are they placed?
Wreath’s will be placed by Friday, December 15th, or sooner. Cemetery staff hand places each wreath out on an easel—placement will take a few days.
3) How are wreath’s placed in the Niche/Urn Garden/Cremation area?
The easel will be placed in close proximity to where your loved one is located.
4) What happens if the wreath starts to get dry, or if it is stolen?
Since the wreath’s are fresh, it is natural that after a prolonged time outside they will begin to dry out. The cemetery is not responsible for the care of maintaining the wreath—however, wreath’s often hold-up nicely for the time they are displayed within the cemetery.
Although very rare, if a wreath is stolen the cemetery is not responsible for the replacement.
5) Can multiple wreath’s be ordered for the same person?
Yes, we will do our very best to accommodate the space given to display multiple wreath’s if they are ordered.
Please note: the cemetery is not responsible for notifying someone if a wreath has already been ordered for the same person. You may ask prior to placing an order and the cemetery staff can manually look up to see if a order has already been placed.
6) When are the wreath’s picked up for clean-up? Can I keep the wreath?
The wreath’s will be picked up for removal by cemetery staff the week of January 1, 2018. Wreath’s may be picked up directly from the site and kept by the person who purchased it, or a designee. The cemetery is not responsible for the storage of wreath’s or the coordination of pick-up. The easel the wreath is placed on is not available for purchase or keep.
