Oakland Cemetery Walk is a success

To the editor:

The annual Oakland Cemetery Walk was a success again this year. The Friends of Oakland Cemetery would like to first of all thank the Ann Smeltzer Charitable Trust, without their continued support and donation each year we would not be able to have the walk. Others we would like to thank for their donations are: Graham Tire, Kemna Auto, Bill Becker, C & S Products, Rees Truck & Trailer, Gunderson Funeral Home, Mikos & Matt Furniture, Kim Wetzel & Three Eagles Radio, Shimkat Motors, Historic Bruce’s Funeral Home, United Bank Of Iowa, & Fort & Schiegel Bookkeeping. We would also like to thank Iowa Central Community College, Ashley Garst, Dan Garst and Party Productions, Ruth Bennett for her research on the scripts, Parks & Recreation. Department, the portrayers who do a great job each year and the public for coming out and supporting us on Friday night and the Sunday performance. I would also like to thank the board members for their continued work that it takes each year to put on the walk.
