I learned yesterday that tomorrow is the Second Annual “Visit a Cemetery Day” and I had to spread the word. From what I can tell, the day is promoted by mysendoff.com, International Memorialization Supplier Organization (IMSA), Kates-Boylston Publications and American Cemetery Magazine. The sidebar ad which announced this day took me to a page on mysendoff.com. Overall, I like that this is an event, not that I need a special day to visit a cemetery, but if it gets others in cemeteries to appreciate them, then that is a good thing. What do you think about the day being so close to Halloween?
So will you be visiting a cemetery in honor of the day? In all honesty, I likely will not get to one, as I will be prepping for some sort of impact from Hurricane Sandy.
As I won’t be in a cemetery for “Visit a Cemetery Day,” I will post pictures of a small graveyard I just had to stop at last week. You’ll see why when I post them tomorrow.
Speaking of pictures, the Preservation and Place Facebook Page now has bonus photos from the Newport Food Truck Festival I attended last week. A few need a bit of editing, so those will get swapped out eventually, but I didn’t want to delay their being posted overall.
The Facebook Page has been active for one month now, thanks to everyone who has stopped by to check it out, and a big thank you to all who have liked the page. I do post bonus photo albums and links to on-topic articles and webpages, so it’s not a rehashing of the blog, so if you haven’t gone to look at it, please do.
For anyone who has already been hit by the storm, I hope you are okay! For anyone in the storm’s path over the next few days, be careful and stay safe!
