Second Annual Cemetery Walk this weekend

REED CITY — The Osceola County Genealogy Society presents the second annual Cemetery Walk tour. 2nd Annual Cemetery Walk tour.

The event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10 at Woodland Cemetery, 550 W. Church Street, Reed City. In case of rain, the walk will be rescheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17.

This year’s theme observes the 100 year anniversary of U.S. involvement in Wold War I, and the tour will include visiting the graves of WWI veterans.

Debra Miller-Tossey, of the Osceola County Genealogy Society, said the walk is a fun way to learn about the area’s history.

“We have heard several people talk about the walk and are looking forward to it, so I hope the turnout is good,” she said. “The response last year was more than 40 people, and with all the talk we are hoping for more walkers to attend, especially with the theme being WWI.
