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

Presented by Adam Veal, Guemes Island Cemetery District Commissioner. We will meet at the cemetery gates at 6:30 pm on Monday evening, September 11. 

Adam will guide us through the 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 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.
