The City Parks & Recreation staff continues to seek help in both City Cemeteries: The Historic Cemetery and the ‘new’ cemetery, which was the Oddfellows and, of course, Woodlawn Cemetery on Salmon Creek Road.  As you consider volunteering, please help us contact existing family and friends who can bring their gravesites up-to-date and up-to-regulations by removing rocks and decorative rocks and by placing headstones that meet the minimal requirements.  The cemetery rules can be found online at www.cityofseward.us.  SPRD staff can assist you with locating one grave site to adopt to assist the community’s efforts to improve the cemetery, the safety of the visitors and record-keeping.  Call the Parks Maintenance and Campgrounds’ office at 224.4055 or Director Karin Sturdy, 224.4053 or .  The City is moving forward surveying new plots and researching old gravesites, which will include cremains.  Work in October will move the City closer to the development of reserving a gravesite for the future, much like private cemeteries allow.
