Descendants' portrayal adds charm to cemetery walk

A tour in Ephraim will give the community the opportunity to learn about historical residents from the village. The 9th annual “Dearly Departed” Cemetery Walk will take place on September 9th and features portrayals of four people who were an important part of Ephraim’s history. Chairman of the Ephraim Moravian Church Cemetery Walk Committee Lonnie Vitse was inspired to start this event after seeing one in Iowa. Two of the people being highlighted will be portrayed by their descendants which Vitse says adds a different element to the tour.



The event is free and open to the public and will take place at the Ephraim Moravian Cemetery. The first tour will begin at 1 P.M. with a second tour taking place at 2:30 P.M.
