The City of Covington presents "Whisperings from the Past," at Covington Cemetery #1, 608 N. Columbia Street, on Saturday, October 20, 2018.
Whisperings, started over 20 years ago by former Covington City Councilwoman Pat Clanton and others, is a cemetery re-enactment where attendees get to hear the stories and anecdotes of those people from Covington’s past who helped shape the city and the parish into what they are today.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an opening ceremony. The first tour will begin at 5:45 p.m. and another tour will follow every 15 minutes, with the last tour beginning at 8:00 p.m. Each tour group will accommodate 20 people. Reservations for time slots are recommended as space is limited. To reserve a time slot, email email@example.com or call 985-892-1873. Ticket price is to be announced. Attendees will pay for and pick up their ticket at the event.
Chairs will be available at multiple sites around the cemetery so attendees may sit for a few minutes and listen to one of Covington’s past residents speak about what Covington was like when they lived there, and about their part in the overall history of the town’s development. Some of Covington’s leading residents will participate.
This event is not suitable for small children, and cemetery etiquette and decorum will be followed.
If anyone would like to volunteer to be an "angel" for the evening and lead tours through the cemetery, they can call or email Amy Tucker at (985) 892-1873 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
