The Galt Museum and Archivesâ€™ Flashlight Cemetery Tours are back starting this weekend.
The 50-minute guided tours of Lethbridge’s oldest burying ground, St. Patrickâ€™s Cemetery, are designed for people who love to experience the history they werenâ€™t taught in school, says Belinda Crowson, Galt Museum educator.
â€œCemeteries are integral to the story of every community for there are recorded the lives of the people who built our towns and of our community itself,â€ Crowson said.
â€œWalking through the rows of graves we catch a glimpse of the realities of peopleâ€™s lives, whether short or long, rich or poor, and we have a visual, palpable reminder of how we are all connected.â€
Tours will be held today, Saturday, Oct. 3, 8, 9 and 10 at various times after sunset. Tickets are $5 for the public and $4 for annual pass holders at the Galt Museum store.
