There are few Cemetery Walks in our state and we are very pleased to have a very dedicated group of volunteers who help to keep this tradition alive in our town.
Our volunteers give a brief biographical talk before their historical character’s graveside in the Old Baptist Cemetery in Salisbury Heights. The Cemetery Walk is a very interesting joining of past and present. This event takes place in June during the Round Robin School Program and again at Old Home Day in August.
It is also a wonderful opportunity for young and old to participate. Any age group is welcomed. Please contact us if you should have an interest in being a character or creating a garment. If you are an educator in our district interested in coordinating possible participation by a student for community service or history projects please contact us.
Many thanks to those who maintain this interesting event by being a historical character, aiding in costume procurement or construction and those assisting in the events.
