This past weekend, we attended the 2nd Annual Halloween Night at the Cemetery at the East Cleveland Township Cemetery. Although the name might not make it completely clear, the event is a torchlit tour of the cemetery with stops for stories of individuals who are buried there. This year, they planned for the high turnout by having two tour groups at each time slot for a total of four tours. We visited 11 sites in the cemetery, with a mix of marked and unmarked graves, and there was only one brief story that was a repeat of the previous year’s tour. We were very lucky to have our tour lead by Nancy West, the author of To Dwell with Fellow Clay, a history of the cemetery and its residents. Before and after the tour, the restored chapel at the gate was open with baked goods, candy, and cider. Nancy stated they would have the tour again next year, and I will be there. I hope that in the future more of my readers will be able to make it out and support the great work the cemetery foundation is doing to take care of this historic cemetery.

On October 22, 2011, East Cleveland Township Cemetery is holding their 2nd Annual Halloween Night at the Cemetery. This was a good tour last year, and they promised that they will have new stories so that people can attend multiple years in a row and always hear something they haven’t before. This is a link to their flyer. Hope to see some of you there!

Sadly, the Woodland Cemetery Living History tour scheduled for tomorrow, June 26, is cancelled.

Woodland does have some other exciting activities planned for later this year:
August 21, 2011 — Annual Scavenger Hunt (1 pm)
We did this last year and it was a lot of fun.

September 24, 2011 — Geocaching with the Boy Scouts (but open to the public)
I haven’t done this, but my understanding is that the locations they find correspond with the Boy Scout oath.

October 2, 2011 — Murder Tour 2011
This is new, and I’m really excited about it.

East Cleveland also has a Halloween tour scheduled again for this year – October 22, 2011. This was a great time last year, and they have promised to have a different tour this year to encourage repeat visitors.

This is what I know about right now – I will update with more dates as I know about them.
