Saline Rotary presents the Oakwood Cemetery Enactment Tour on September 29, 2019

The Rotary Club of Saline invites you to get to know the people who lived here in the 1800s. 

 

There will be actors dressed in period clothing sharing the experiences of the past.  Most will be standing near their tombs. Through the many stories, you will learn some of our Saline history which made our community unique.

 

One past-attendee shared, “I have driven by this cemetery to and from work for years and never noticed it.  Now the Saline people buried there have come alive for me.  It was very interesting.” 

 

This year there are all new people and stories to be shared.  Come and let the Saline of the 1800’s come alive for you!
