Golden History Moment

Dennis Potter giving the cemetery tour in 2019

I always enjoy the October tours of the Golden cemetery. This year’s tours were canceled because of coronavirus concerns.

I took a leisurely ramble through the cemetery this past week. I noticed that–because I’ve done so much historical research over the past six months–I know a lot more of the names than I used to!

If people are interested, I could put together a self-guided cemetery tour, so you could visit the graves of some of the people I’ve been writing about. Let me know if that’s of interest to you.
