Several things make Arlington a unique cemetery. Very few cemeteries can claim ten acres of forested land. Arlington has an infant burial ground, a Muslim burial section, a cremation area, and a pet burial site.
Although every lot owner has a say in the operation of Arlington’s affairs, Arlington is governed by a voluntary, non-paid, Board of Directors consisting of seven members. This groups of advisors makes all decisions regarding financing and operations. Their greatest priority is that of serving as trustees for expenditures and investments of all cemetery funds and the absolute assurance of what is commonly called, perpetual care.
As previously stated, Arlington is strictly a non-profit organization. That means all monies must continuously be placed into the cemetery’s general fund and directed thereafter to long term care investments, beautification, expansion, maintenance, operating salary expenses and general upkeep however defined of the Memorial Park. A cemetery is a very large and expensive enterprise, and therefore any heartfelt donations are appreciated either in the form of a direct gift from the living or remembrance in the will of the deceased. Although Arlington has no foreseeable crisis, cemeteries across the country regularly fall into disrepair and finally abandonment due to a lack of sustenance.
Therefore, your input whether financial or that of mere suggestions is always valued.
Arlington also has a Pet Cemetery with an animal burial ground and a customized animal cremation facility. If you are interested in this service, please click on the following link: www.arlingtonpetcemetery.com
