Beyond the Gates – A Walking Tour of the Guemes Island Cemetery

Beyond the Gates - A Walking Tour of the Guemes Island Cemetery

We are so lucky that our Guemes Island Historical Society is deeply passionate about preserving and sharing the rich history of our island. If you've never attended a presentation, I'd highly suggest it. Though I may be a "young" person on this island at nearly 40, I am always enthralled by the stories and information GIHS has in their pockets. Their next presentation is no exception.

“Beyond the Gates: A Walking Tour of the Guemes Island Cemetery”
Presented by Adam Veal, Guemes Island Cemetery District Commissioner.
Monday, September 11, 6:30 p.m. Cemetery Gates

Adam will lead a walk through our historic Guemes cemetery focusing on several early settlers, such as the Edens family, whose influence is still felt to this day. In addition we'll learn about some of the later arrivals on the island. Adam will share his knowledge of those that have come before us, with his favorite stories and amusing anecdotes. Please join us in a stroll through time.

The regularly scheduled GIHS business meeting will immediately follow Adam's presentation.
The meeting is open to all, and we encourage your participation.

Please contact Tom Deach (360-708-2582)with any questions you may have.
