2007 Living History Portrayal Walk

Oakridge Cemetery, one of the oldest continuously operated cemeteries in Michigan, is home again this year to the annual Living History Portrayal Walk. This guided walking tour will feature actors portraying significant persons from Marshall's past at each of those individual's gravesites. This year’s famous Marshallnites include Nathan Benedict, William H. Brown, George Emery Church, Dulcenia Daily, Mary Edgerton, Augustus Hyde, and Thomas Sullivan. The event will take place rain or shine so participants are encouraged to bring flashlights, wear comfortable walking shoes, and carry an umbrella.

When: October 6, 2007
Time: 7:00 pm

For more information, please contact the Marshall Chamber of Commerce.

Walter’s excuse for missing last year’s program was that he got lost after taking the advice of a grifter – listening to so-called “City Slang” – and ended up in Canada. When he crossed the borderline back into the USA, the city was burning with people dancing around shouting, “Rama Lama Fa Fa Fa.” It must have been a sight to see, I’m sure. Still, we hope Walter manages to show up for an appearance this year.
