Fox Lake Cemetery Walk To Honor Local Settlers

(Fox Lake) A long standing Fox Lake tradition returns Saturday. The Fox Lake Cemetery Walk provides visitors an opportunity to learn what life was like for early settlers of the area and what it was like to travel a great distance by foot or by ox cart. Fox Lake historian Julie Flemming says the cemetery walk is done with tiki lights positioned at each grave of the ten individuals who will be honored. A few of the honorees include J.C. Williams, C.C. Hurd, John Bonner and J.C. Williams who Flemming says has a unique story involving a cannon kidnapping. The Fox Lake Cemetery Walk begins at 7:30pm tomorrow and will go until 9pm. The cost to enter is $4 for an adult and $1 per child. Flemming says she still needs two volunteers to serve as ‘ghosts,’ who recount the important life notes of the nights honorees to passerby’s. She says if anyone is interested to call her at 920-210-7865. There are also several other activities planned throughout the day. At 1pm there is a parade on Blackhawk Trial, at 5pm there is a boat parade on the Fox Lake and at 6:30 pm there is a concert in Riverside Park with fireworks planned at dusk.
