Oct. 11: Cemetery Walk in Montgomery

Senior Presentation October 11th

At 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 11th, the Historic Preservation Commission will present an indoor version of the Cemetery Walk for those who are unable to attend the event in the cemetery on October 5th. This indoor presentation on October 11th will take place in the Board Room at the Village Hall, 200 N. River Street.

The annual Cemetery Walk takes place in Riverside Cemetery. Guests are led through the cemetery in small groups to meet the fascinating “ghosts” of early pioneers and other residents of the cemetery as portrayed by costumed actors. This is not a scary event, but an opportunity to learn more about the lives of those men and women who contributed in various ways to Montgomery’s history.

This free presentation is being offered by the Village of Montgomery. There is no charge and the event is handicapped accessible. The monthly Senior Lunch and activity will begin at 11:00 a.m. after the presentation. There is a $4 suggested donation for the lunch.

For additional information on this event, please call the Montgomery Village Hall at (630) 896-8080 ext. 1227.
