  • 1:00 – Bicycles ride through the Cemetery to hear the actors
  • 1:15 – Two walking tours
  • 1:30 – Two walking tours
  • 1:45 – Two walking tours
  • 2:00 – Actors will come to you – for senior citizens and those with walking difficulties.

During the cemetery walk, donations will be accepted and will go toward future programs. Parking is limited at the cemetery, so if you can carpool, that will help the situation. Also, use the south entrance of the cemetery.
