Annual cemetery tour to set to return in October

The Dearly Departed Players will return to a walking tour this year for the annual tour at Dunmore Cemetery to be held on Sundays Oct. 2 and 9. Tours will start promptly at 2 p.m. and run about 90 minutes. Comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Admission is free. For information, call 570-344-3819.

The Dearly Departed Players will be in the cemetery with a new round of people from the past, including both serious and humorous moments planned.  

For the past two years, the COVID pandemic forced the Players to refashion the tour so attendees could drive through the cemetery, so there is excitement about returning to the original walking format.

In addition to the tour, there will be a premiere of Luz Cabrales and Scranton Films award-winning Dunmore Cemetery Tour documentary on Friday, Sept. 30, at St. Lucy’s Parish Hall in Scranton.  There will be some nice activities going on from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by a showing of the documentary at 7 o’clock.  Admission for that is $5 and refreshments will be served.
