ELKHART — Spring cleanup at Elkhart’s cemeteries is just around the corner.

The annual cleanup is scheduled to begin April 7, according to Mayor Dick Moore’s office. That means old decorations need to be removed beforehand.

The cemetery department requests all old decorations be removed in the city’s three cemeteries: Rice, Prairie Street and Grace Lawn.

New decorations can be placed at grave sites beginning April 11.

For more details, call the cemetery department at 293-2811.
