[post resureditted from last year]

Although there won't be a quiz, I wanted to make sure you zombies and ghouls are all experts on this Saturday's Fundraiser.

First FAQ

Q:   I heard it's going to be cold and rainy and may even snow on Saturday will the event still occur ?

A: Of course not silly, cold and rain don't make fun parties. The Rain Date for the Cemetery portion of the party with will be SUNDAY OCTOBER 30 at 3:30/4:00 PM. THE AFTER LIFE PARTY AT THE LAMP POST WILL HAPPEN REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER. But come early as we may throw an extra band or two on the bill.

We will make a call on the event on Friday Evening, or early Saturday Morning . Check for the latest updates. 

+++ Please be respectful of the cemetery grounds and those persons in attendance in spirit +++++DO NOT Smoke around the graveyard. Smoke in the driveway area only and DO NOT LITTER
DO NOT Lean on, sit on, play on the Gravestone. Most of them are older than you.
BE CAREFUL walking the grounds of  the cemetery. The walkways are old and some of the ground has settled. DO NOT - DO NOT go into any restricted areas as there are dangerous and most likely have poison ivy as well.
