Supper in the Cemetery Set for October 11th
Tour the tombstones with the Museums of Hopkinsville as part of this year’s Big Read! Our annual Supper in the Cemetery program will be held on Friday, October 11 at 5pm. Enjoy a traditional boxed supper in Riverside Cemetery before convening inside the Riverside Chapel. There, we will hear from well-known, beloved, and interesting couples who have made significant impacts in Our Town and beyond. This long-standing Museum event explores the history of our community by learning more from those who came before us.
Supper will be served at 5:00, and the show will start at 5:45pm.
