Cemetery Driving Tour
For history and genealogy buffs -- as well as those interested in seeing a sampling of the Island's 70+ cemeteries -- three Westport Island organizations: the Community Association, the History Committee and the Cemetery Committee are joining forces to lead an Island cemetery tour. Gas up the car, fill it with friends, and bring your curiousity. Organization members will be leading a vehicle caravan to visit a sampling of Island cemeteries and provide historical anecdotes of the area and its early settlers. Displays will be on view at the Town Hall; and history and cemetery books will be available for purchase. The caravan will leave the Town Hall, 1217 Main Road, at 10:15 sharp. Dress for the weather and outdoor hiking conditions. The event is free; donations accepted.
