From Becky Garrett on 10/07/2014

My parents and my husband's parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and our son are buried there. I find this very upsetting. If this is a history lesson, why does it have to be at night. It wouldn't be near as disturbing if it was done during daylight hours as a valid history lesson, and not at the same time as Halloween activities.

My grandmother is buried in that cemetery and, while she is not a founder of Edmond, I would be honored for her story to be told and her legacy to live on. The possibility of setting up a mock cemetery at hafer park is a good idea too. Attend a meeting and present that suggestion. I'm not saying your opinions or concerns are not valid, but I do feel like you all have jumped to conclusions without actually learning about the event and what the money raised goes to. I say all this not as member of the historical trust OR even as a current resident of edmond.
