The Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll continues, despite cancellation.
The Maple Hill Cemetery has reached its 200th year, and has been an October destination for history buffs and ghost story lovers alike for decades.

Join Dingo&Josie each weekday morning in the 6 and 8 o'clock hours on 102.1 WDRM to experience the Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll and click the link to donate to keep the tradition alive.
