Cemetery Walk 2017

2017 – 24th Annual Cemetery Walk

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 was held at Greenwood Cemetery in Galena Saturday and Sunday, June 10th & 11th. A seated, indoor performance was held at Grace Episcopal Church in Galena on Friday June 16.

“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.”

We want to thank Ronn Toebaas who wrote and directed the performance, Scott Wolfe and Kris Chapman for historical research conducted, Bryan Ackerman, the stage manager, and Michelle Blanchard our wonderful costumer.
