Kewanna Public Library will be hosting “A Walk Through the Cemetery” given by Jeannie Regan-Dinius on Wednesday, June 7 @ 11:00.

 

Cemeteries offer a glimpse into our past by looking at clusters of burials, epitaphs, and death dates.  But they also show us what our ancestor believed in, wanted others to remember about them, and pop culture.  Spend time with Jeannie Regan-Dinius, Director of Special Initiatives for the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, as she walks you through photos of tombstones from around the world.
