Deciding that "the only way to get anything done is to do it yourself," one lotholder in Arborcrest Cemetery has transported his lawnmower and mowed to his burial plots from the road. This plot is in the Four Chaplains' Memorial Garden, down the hill from the large granite monument which is the focal point of this garden. A court-ordered plan for maintenance of the cemetery calls for a minimum of 40 hours per week with efforts concentrated in one memorial garden and its adjoining roadway at a time with weekly efforts to maintain the general condition of all the grounds, grass being cut and trees trimmed as necessary. Circuit Judge James R. Breakey Jr. demanded this maintenance plan after touring the weed-choked cemetery grounds on June 30, 1964.
