GeNA is partnering with the North East Winnipeg Historical Society for a “sitting tour” at Elmwood Cemetery.
The event is at 1pm in section 6A (middle of the cemetery) of the historic cemetery which gave its name to the surrounding area. Opening in 1902, it is the oldest non-denominational cemetery in western Canada. We will discuss approx. 48 prominent people/families. Bring your lawn chair, blanket, umbrella, etc. There will be flag markers on the gravesites, so you can wander to view during or after the tour. The ground is uneven so proper walking shoes are recommended.
There will be free refreshments courtesy of GeNA!
