Doors Open features Maryhill locations

In the pouring rain some brave souls were listening to Mary Ann Stroh speak about that particular monument.  Each of the 38 stones had information about them.

This was the 5th year that St. Boniface Church & Cemetery and the Edward Halter Home invited people to visit.  Doors Open took place on Saturday, September 17th from 10 – 5 p.m.  Although it poured rain the whole day and was very windy it did not deter many people from coming out and visiting.  Guides were available to take visitors through or people were welcomed to browse on their own.

The church had handouts for self-guided walking tours which many found very helpful.  The cemetery has 38 interesting monuments and there was information posted at each of the sites.  People were encouraged to take their time and walk through also examining the iron crosses which St. Boniface Cemetery is well known for.  The Edward Halter Home had visitors browsing through all 3 floors or again they could have guided tours.
