Woodlawn Cemetery

On Friday, June 28 the Woodlawn Cemetery will be spread with “Dylox”, which is an insecticide for grub control. It will be spread on the 5 acres “near side” (not across the bridge). After the insecticide is spread, they will fertilize the area. Saturday it is supposed to rain to allow everything to saturate into the ground. Please be cautious with dogs and children.
