As a reminder, mowing season continues through October 31st, permitting only fresh flowers in proper bouquet holders. Harvest decorations, such as pumpkins, squashes, or small gourds are not permitted. They are a food source to deer and other wildlife. The mess left behind is unsightly and creates a maintenance issue. Please be aware, our field staff has been instructed to remove any decorations that are not permitted. Beginning November 1st, we transition to our winter decoration guidelines where only winter wreaths and other artificial decorations are permitted. Thank you for your understanding and for choosing Catholic cemeteries. For more information, please review our Decoration Guidelines.
As many of you are aware, the past year and a half has been a strain on many businesses, with none more affected than the service industries. Our business has not been immune from the impacts of the pandemic. CCA is currently experiencing a 25% labor shortage and staffing reduction from our normal full capacity. This shortage is across all labor types, including permanent, temporary, and high school, college, and summer-only workers.
The labor shortage and overall pandemic related staff reductions has had a direct impact on our trimming and maintenance services resulting in some of our gravesites being less than optimally maintained. We want you to know that we are very much aware of the situation and are working diligently to address the issue. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to rectify the situation.
