Society Meeting

January 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MST

Topic: Tombstone Tourists presented by Jim Benedict.

Millions of tourists visit cemeteries annually, walking amongst the grave sites of those who have passed on. Why do they do it? What is the attraction of viewing the markers of others, and not necessarily family connections? This is a growing business for cemeteries and some places have parties, movie nights, dinners and special events for their patrons. Celebrities who have passed on still have followers. So, follow this presentation on a new activity for retirement: tombstone tourists. A second part will be an update on the cemetery project.

We welcome visitors! Email communications@afhs.ab.ca to obtain a visitor invitation.
Details will be posted when the topic is finalized.
