PHS students in period costumes

PHS actors bring Cemetery Walk to life

Posted May 14, 2018

Plymouth High School drama students will portray past Plymouth residents during the annual Union Cemetery Walk.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 20 and conclude with the playing of Taps at 3 p.m. Attendees should plan one hour to enjoy the walk, which is sponsored by Suchon Funeral Home and organized by the Plymouth Historical Society.

Participants walk at their own pace to various gravesites, where PHS students dressed in period clothing re-enact the lives of 18 past residents. Among them will be farmers, cheesemaker, mayors, Civil War vets, and a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

Parking is available at the VFW Hall at the end of Division Street, where brochures outlining the tour will be available. The walk begins either at the VFW parking lot or at the Forest Avenue entrance.
