"Ghostly Encounters V"

"Ghostly Encounters V"

Back by popular demand, some of “residents” of Wakeman Cemetery will return to join us live on Wednesday, October 10, 6:30 PM for a fifth year of “Ghostly Encounters.”

Bring a lawn chair to sit upon & a blanket to ward off chills! Our stage will consist of a grassy, relatively level and grave marker-free area. In case of inclement weather, come to the Wakeman Building, 401 Farnsworth Road at 6:30 p.m. Thanks to the Waterville Gas & Oil Company for allowing free parking in their lot across the street.

The Ghostly Encounters will once again feature “permanent residents” who were selected not necessarily on the basis of their importance in local history, but in respect to the interesting life stories they can tell. Refreshments to follow in the basement of the Presbyterian Church next door where church members will serve refreshments, including hot chocolate, and cast members will be introduced.
