Reservations still open for this year's Oswego Cemetery Walk, set for Thursday, Oct. 6

Reservations are still being taken for the popular Oswego Cemetery Walk, set for Thursday, Oct. 6, from 5-9 p.m. at the Oswego Township Cemetery, South Main Street, Oswego.

This year's "ghosts" include early settler and temperance activist Margaret Young; wealthy businessman and former newspaper owner Charles Clinton and Robert Cameron who sued Clinton; early settler Ann Eliza DeVoe; and Charlotte Murphy, wife of Oswego politician and lawyer Wright Murphy.

Every 20 minutes, starting at 5 p.m., groups of visitors will be guided through the cemetery where they will hear brief presentations by the "ghosts" of the early Oswego residents who are buried in the cemetery. The "ghosts" will relate events of their life and the history that was going on around them.

Participants should be able to walk for 45 minutes, wear comfortable shoes, and are encouraged to bring flashlights. An adult must accompany all children.

Reservations, $5 per person, are required.

THIS IS REAL. I REPEAT, THIS IS REAL. The black mirror is real, the black mirror is really powerful, effective and 100% reliable. My name is Walter Brian, I want to thank Dada Magical for giving his black mirror to me. Since he gave me his black mirror, I became rich, successful, protected, informed and powerful. I was browsing through the internet one day when I saw multiple testimonies on how Dada Magical has helped so many people with his black mirror. I thought it was a joke at first but I gave it a try and contacted him. He sold the black mirror to me and told me how to use it and all that I need to do. I followed the instructions just as he told me and to my greatest surprise, it worked just as he told me. The black mirror is still working for me. The mirror also brings good luck, blessings and information. Contact Dada Magical now on his email; [email protected] and he will help you also with the black mirror just the same way he helped me. Thank you Great Dada Magica
