It really seems amazing that 2017 marks the 8th year GGG members have been “crawling” around local cemeteries. It’s time once again to make your cemetery reservations! The 8th Annual Cemetery Crawl will be held on October 8, 2017
. (Rain Date October 15th
) This year we will be crawling at Holy Cross Cemetery in East Flatbush, Brooklyn
. At 10:45
we will all be meeting at the main gate at 3620 Tilden Avenue
. (From Long Island, take the Belt Parkway to Flatbush Ave, North, Exit 11N, bear right to Brooklyn Ave. to the intersection of Tilden Ave. The entrance is on your right) This beautiful cemetery was opened in 1849, and today encompasses 96 acres.
JoAnn Schmidt, GGG member and Cemetery “Expert,” will be leading the group. It is imperative that you register by email so in the event of weather that forces a change in plans, you can be notified by JoAnn. A decision to cancel related to rain will be made by 8:30 am.
For members who have never attended, it is not about only visiting family graves, it is about sharing the stories of some of those who rest in this beautifully maintained oasis. Please make your “cemetery reservation” by emailing Jo Ann at Familystalker50@gmail.com Each year we have had a turnout of at least 20-30 members and their families. Consider joining your fellow history lovers for this free event.
