History of LaBelle Cemetery
By Gordon Telford
LaBelle Cemetery Board Member
The over 170-year history of LaBelle Cemetery and its predecessors will be traced from the original town cemetery for Oconomowoc, Henshall Place Cemetery, to the present LaBelle Cemetery. Much of the history of Oconomowoc lives in LaBelle Cemetery and many of the important people buried in the cemetery will be highlighted. The Cemetery’s place in the listing of haunted cemeteries will be reviewed.
ANNUAL GALA – NITE AT THE MUSEUM
The Annual Gala will be on Wednesday, May 10th from 6 – 9 pm. This is a nice kick off to the 2017 season for visitors, members and friends. Food, drink and treats will be abundant and offer a variety of delicious choices. As an extra treat, we will have General George Patton to join us for a program! He says he has never been in this area so it will be a fresh appearance for him… and a new experience if you’ve never seen someone portraying him.
RSVP required call (2620 569-0740 or send check: $50/person no later than May 2nd.
