Christ the King Parish cemeteries — Calvary Cemetery in Skowhegan and St. Sebastian Cemetery in Madison — are set to close for the winter in October or first snowfall.

All decorations — including pots, holders, saddles, gazing balls and flags — must be removed by Monday, Oct. 30, or the attendant will dispose of them.

Christmas trees, breakable ornaments and statues, lawn decorations, toys, and all types of solar lights are not permitted.

Without notice to the easement holder, the parish reserves the right to remove and dispose of any memorials or decorations that are left at the cemetery after Oct. 31.
