Cemetery Walk 2018

2018 – 25th 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 25th Annual Cemetery Walk will be held at Greenwood Cemetery in Galena Saturday and Sunday, June 9th & 10th. A seated, indoor performance will be held at Grace Episcopal Church in Galena on June 15th.

“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.”

As they prepare for the 2018 event, we want to thank Ronn Toebaas who writes and directs the performance, Scott Wolfe and Kris Chapman for historical research conducted, Bryan Ackerman, the stage manager, and Michelle Blanchard our wonderful costumer.
