Biannual Cemetery Clean Up Successful

By Mila Besich-Lira

Even with the wind blowing, volunteers came out to clean the Fairview Cemetery this past weekend.

Local Superior residents Freddie and Minnie Denogean spent part of the morning working on the sections where their family members are laid to rest. “There are so many old graves with no one to care for them, it is nice to see people coming to take care of them” explained Mrs. Denogean.

Volunteers were treated to a lunch and drinks were provided throughout the workdays. In addition to community volunteers the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office sent 12 inmates to assist.

During the fall clean up the volunteers focused on the northwest side of the cemetery. The Pinal County Board of Supervisors provided the roll off dumpsters under an agreement with the town.

Through the agreement the county will pay the full cost of the roll-offs if the town is financially unable to pay for their portion of the roll-offs. Supervisor Pete Rios apologized that he was unable to attend the clean up but said “I am happy to be able to help provide the roll-offs”.

The Oct. clean up was the second scheduled for this year by the current Town Council and was scheduled to prepare for those who visit the cemetery for Dia de los Muertos.

This past May the council also hosted a cemetery cleanup just before the Mother’s Day and Memorial Day holidays. “This will be a bi annual tradition for the town” explained Mayor Jayme Valenzuela
