    Wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the walk thru North Cemetery with some local legends. What a great experience and fantastic way to see/hear history in action. All the dead did a great job recollecting about their lives especially “Kat Rice”! Kudos to Maddy.
    Hope there are more walks in the future.
