2017 – 24th Annual Cemetery Walk
June 10th & 11th Greenwood Cemetery * June 16th Indoor Seated Performance
Every June, the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society remembers the lives and contributions of past Galenians with its annual Cemetery Walk. Local performers portray select individuals buried in Galena’s Greenwood Cemetery and recount their lives. The 24th Annual Cemetery Walk will be held at Greenwood Cemetery, in Galena, Ill, Saturday and Sunday, June 10th & 11th, with tours starting every 20 minutes between the hours of 2 and 4:30 p.m. A seated, indoor performance will be held at Grace Episcopal Church in Galena on Friday June 16, at 7:30 p.m.
“The Cemetery Walk can be a very personal way for Galenians to celebrate our town’s past,” says Ronn Toebaas, Galena-based writer and director. “Combining the talents of our great assortment of local performers with the stories to past Galenians who lived rich, enthralling lives results in memorable presentations.”
Ronn Toebaas writes and directs the performance, historical research is done by Scott Wolfe and Kris Chapman, Bryan Ackerman is the stage manager, and Michelle Blanchard is costumer.
Ticket Price is $15.00 at the gate.
