Ask us Anything: Part II

Ask us Anything: Part II

Virtual Program with Laurel Hill's Weekend Staff on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at 1:00 pm

In case you missed the first one in July, we’re opening the virtual floor again to answer any questions and satisfy any curiosity you have about Laurel Hill Cemetery. Ask us a weird or not-so-weird question. Ask us about a specific person or monument that piques your interest. Ask us about something old, something new, or even the animals that live on the grounds. We have oddities to share between questions as well — like a woman exhumed for her ring and a man buried in a walkway. Carol Yaster and David Gurmai, our weekend staff, have more than 25 years of experience digging through the cemetery’s past. Go ahead, ask us anything…part II.

This discussion will take place on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at 1:00 pm, virtually through a Zoom meeting. A What to Expect email will be sent to all ticket holders before the talk starts with information on how to log in. (Please note, tickets will be on sale until 12 pm on Saturday, December 13, 2020.)

Ticket pricing is pay-what-you-wish. Contributions will support the work of the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries. You can contribute through the RSVP link.
