The Cemetery will endeavor to provide such general ground care and maintenance so long as possible after it ceases to receive current income from the sale of ownership rights, memorials and conducting commitment services by setting aside and investing funds in a separate Endowment Fund for this purpose.
The Endowment Fund contains those funds previously provided by owners through contributions for what was called perpetual care, whether voluntary or previously deemed to be part of the price of any good or service previously sold received for the sale of ownership rights for such care.
Endowment care means the care and maintenance of the surface conditions of the lot or sites specified, such as grading, fertilizing, seeding, and, as far as possible, the keeping of them purchased site(s) clean and in good appearance. The term “care and maintenance” does not include the maintenance, repair or replacement of any gravestones or monumental structures placed or erected upon the site(s) the planting of flowers or ornamental plants, floral arrangements, containers and foundations, the maintenance or doing of any special or unusual work in the Cemetery and the reconstruction of any marble, granite, bronze or concrete work on any section or lot, or any portion or portions thereof in the Cemetery, or other buildings or structures. The term Perpetual Care is a term that has been used in the past by the Cemetery in deeds, contracts, certificates and rules and regulations in the past.
