The Marvelous Women of Elmwood Cemetery

A Suds & Stories Presentation

The very first person to be buried at Elmwood was a woman. A Civil Rights activist, a beauty queen, suffragists, an explorer, and so many more: the women who are buried at Elmwood Cemetery lived incredibly diverse lives. They contributed to the world we live in, shaping it and improving it for all.

We invite you to join us on Sunday, August 18th at 3 pm for an indoor, seated, and thoroughly air-conditioned presentation by Elmwood's Executive Director Kim Bearden on The Marvelous Women of Elmwood Cemetery. This presentation will last about 45 minutes and wine, other beverages, and snacks are included. The cost is $20 per person.

Join us for this talk and let's celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in the US! Call 901-774-3212 for more information.
