Lake View Cemetery’s final summer tour to be held Aug. 26

Lake View Cemetery is pleased to announce the third and final of its free summer tours. On Tuesday, Aug. 26, local author Rolland E. Kidder will lead a tour based on his book “A Hometown Went to War.” The tour will focus on local World War II veterans who were interviewed for Kidder’s book and are buried at Lake View Cemetery. “A Hometown Went to War” is not currently in print. There will be no books available for sale the night of the tour; however, if you have your own copy of Mr. Kidder’s book, he would be happy to sign it.

The tour will begin at the cemetery maintenance building on the north end of the cemetery at 6 p.m. with an opportunity to meet and greet the author and have books signed. At 6:30 p.m. the walking tour will begin and last for 60 to 90 minutes. Many of the tour stops will be near paved roadways; however there may be some “off-road” excursions. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Tour goers may also wish to bring insect repellent. The tours are free of charge. Donations will be gratefully accepted.

Use the Marvin Parkway gates at the north end of the cemetery. You may park along cemetery drives, but keep two tires on the paved surfaces.

Lake View Cemetery thanks the authors and all who attended the tours for making this summer’s tour series a success.
