THIS MONTH: Dunmore Cemetery Tour

Dearly Departed

The Dearly Departed Players will present an all-new tour at the Dunmore Cemetery on Sundays, Oct. 6 and 13, at 2 p.m.

Visitors should arrive early to see exhibits, including VNA Hospice and Home Health of Lackawanna County; Albright Memorial Library, and Scranton Reads. VNA Hospice is exhibiting because their founder, Mrs. Henry Martyn Boies, is buried in the cemetery.

Once again the Dearly Departed Players are partnering with United Neighborhood Centers and  Feed-a-Friend. Admission to the tour is free but the group does ask for a non-perishable donation for that organization.

The tour will take about 2-½ hours.  Comfortable walking shoes are suggested. No reservations are required. 

The tour is researched, written, costumed and directed by Julie Esty — now in her 22nd year of doing tours in the cemetery in one form or another. 

Many of the Dearly Departed Players are now in their 17th year of tours, plus there are some wonderful new cast members this year. The Players are the recipients of a Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Grant.

For more information please call 570-344-3819.
