The City of Pierre will perform its annual spring cleanup of Riverside Cemetery on Thursday, April 15.
People are encouraged to retrieve any mementos, flowers, or other objects that have been left at the grave of loved ones. Any items that haven’t been removed by April 15 will be removed by cemetery staff.
The 35 acres of Riverside Cemetery is owned and maintained by the City of Pierre under the supervision of Cemetery Superintendent Jim Fahey. Riverside Cemetery has served the Pierre community since the late 1800s.
