Have An Hour? Take A Walk in Battle Creek History.
Have an hour this weekend?
Talk a walk in Memorial Park Cemetery (on Territorial Rd near Helmer. The walk around its outer pathway is almost exactly 1.5 miles.).
Kiwanis have all the flowers and flags out and placed there.
Many families adding their own flowers and visiting graves.
Lots of friends and memories to recall and appreciate during the walk.
The Cemetery has an interesting history, as well.... a later timeline to that of near downtown Oak Hill Cemetery, with its plethora of Posts, Kelloggs and other earliernotables.
