CEMETERY STROLL 2016 – CANCELLED . . . BUT GREAT THINGS ARE PLANNED FOR 2017, SO DON’T DESPAIR.
Here is what Kathleen Dever, Stroll coordinator for many years, has reported:
Cemetery Stroll 2016 is postponed until 2017.
Join us next year for: “Murder and Mayhem II”. We are so sorry that the Stroll had to be postponed but with a new grandson and a wonderful year-long job opportunity; we just couldn’t make it happen. Thanks so much to all of you who stepped forward and volunteered to help.
The Friends of Sunnyslope just received a $75 donation towards our goal of securing the cemetery. There will be an update soon on the progress of the block pillars for the main gates.

have been conducted at Sunnyslope for a number of years. Presenters have told the stories of those at rest in the cemetery in a first-person format. These have been presented by the Friends of Sunnyslope, which has sponsored the Cemetery Stroll since 2008 (the Corona Historic Preservation Society sponsored the Cemetery Walk in prior years). All stories have been researched by local historians and written in a narrative format for performance. If you have additional information on these Corona residents, please contact Jean Hibben via email, who will forward the correction or addition to the appropriate historian for further communication and/or adjustment. If you have personal information of someone interred in Sunnyslope that you would like to see featured in a future stroll, contact us and we will follow up accordingly. Primary mover and shaker of the stroll: Kathleen Dever; please direct questions to her via email.
