Can you all believe it is already November! We all had a great October and took part in some wonderful Halloween Events that can only be found in this part of the world. Every year in Manitou Springs Colorado it is the running of the Annual Emma Crawford Coffin races. This event was the largest on record, probably due to the outstanding weather. T-shirt weather at the end of October in Colorado!

In September we organized the 8th Annual Evergreen Cemetery Walking Tour. Although this took place in September it goes great with stories of Halloween and Coffins! As Director of the Benevolent Society, this is my 8th year of organizing this event with the Evergreen Cemetery Benevolent Society. We are a 501c3 non-profit created to restore and preserve the history of Evergreen Cemetery and those buried there through walking tour and living history presentations.

We keep pretty busy so if you happen to try to contact me I just might be out at the cemetery. Keeping history alive and reaching out to young people is so very important, we work with several groups to share a wide range of history.

Share with us your historic events that you participate in or have attended.

With the season of Thanksgiving-lets remember everything and everyone we are thankful for. This life is the only life we have to let those around us know how thankful we are for them sharing their lives with us

Dianne, Call me. I have new information about a breakthrough in material development in the repair of historic stone gravemarkers from our laboratory in Chicago.
