Miles and Sarah Hodges will be two of the participants in the Cedar Hill Cemetery Stroll on Sunday, October 28, 2018, from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m.
The roles of statesmen, law officers, actresses, aviators, writers, philanthropists, and war veterans will be played by local actors, who will relate brief histories of the deceaseds’ lives while standing at the gravesides.
Music will be provided by the Northeast Alabama Community College Music Department.
In case of rain, the event will be held in Bynum Auditorium in the Page administration building at the corner of College and Market Streets.
The entire walk, which is self-paced, is four-tenths of a mile. Each presentation will last approximately five minutes. Water and rest facilities will be made available.
Dogs are not allowed. Visitors are asked to respect the grounds by not sitting on the grave markers.
The stroll is free, but donations will be accepted. Those donations will be used to purchase a headstone for the unmarked grave of Ed Moody, a U.S. Marshall killed by gunfire in Scottsboro in 1921.
The stroll is a joint venture by Northeast Alabama Community College, The Jackson County Historical Association, and the City of Scottsboro. It is funded by a grant from the Alabama Bicentennial Commission.
