Cemetery visitors – important notice

Shrubs, trees and flowers that grow near a headstone will likely damage it.   Please work with us to protect your loved one’s resting place.  Contact us, and we’ll work with you.

Take a look at the photo.  Not only does weather impact headstones, but the plant you see growing could be quickly become a problem.  We know that a small rose bush or evergreen planted today might seem to honor the deceased, but that won’t be the case in ten years.  So please, think before you plant.

Plans are being made for restoration efforts at the two cemeteries maintained by Harris Township.  As part of the effort, vegetation and decorations will be removed.  If you visit the cemetery, we’d much rather work with you before that time arrives.  Please contact the Trustee for more information.

Granger Community Church (is) 4Michiana

Volunteers from Granger Community Church (GCC) recently spread playground mulch, built bird boxes, and planted trees at Harris Township Park as part of their ongoing 4Michiana campaign to serve local community organizations.  Check out the program at their web site gccwired.com, or navigate there via our Partners page.

Dozens of wonderful volunteers gave their Saturday morning this spring to improve the park.  We are very grateful!  Special thanks to Jeanna, Cassie, Dale, Jon and Shelly.

Come to the park this summer to check out the softer play’ground’, and in 20 years to admire the walnut trees bordering the toll road.
