Monetary donations are always appreciated to help defray the costs of maintaining and improving the cemetery. Donations may be mailed to Lori Donehower, 120 Dakota Street, Minnesota City, MN 55959. Donations can be earmarked for a specific purpose and can be given in honor or in memory of someone. Lots are available at a cost of $500 each. To inquire, please contact Lori at 507-689-4344.

In an effort to make the Cemetery easier to mow and to look more attractively maintained, we have set up some guidelines for grave decorations. Plantings, shrubs, or decorations which inhibit mowing may be moved or removed. Any decorations or flower arrangements not removed will be picked up at our annual cemetery clean-up on May 11th at which time we will attempt to leave any spring or summer decorations that look to be in good shape and comply with the rules of the cemetery. Summer/fall decorations are to be removed by November 1. Decorations and flower arrangements can be saved for you. Please refer all requests or questions to Lori Donehower at 507-689-4344 or at 507-458-7111.
