Culver Officials Permit Banner to be Hung for Library’s Stories and Stones Cemetery Walk

An opportunity to get a peek into Culver’s past will soon be promoted to motorists and pedestrians who pass by the Town Park following a decision made by the council members Thursday night.

Town Councilman Bill Githens presented a request on behalf of the Culver-Union Township Public Library related an upcoming ‘Stories and Stones’ event the organization has planned at the Culver Masonic Cemetery next month.

He explained, “There’s going to be a series of stops at various gravesites of people buried there, notable historians and there’s going to be talks and we’re going to have cider and cookies.”

Githens continued, “What the Library would like to do is have a three-foot by six-foot banner placed on the fencing down by the amphitheater.”

Town Manager Jonathan Leist asked if placing it there two weeks in advance would be sufficient and Githens confirmed that would work. Members voted unanimously to allow the banner to be hung.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 21st.

According to the CUTPL website, the history behind the cemetery itself will be shared along with the stories of notable individuals who are buried there. Library officials mentioned that some of the stories will be portrayed by actors in period costume.

If you have any questions about the event, visit the library at 107 N. Main Street or give them a call at 574-842-2941. You can also get in touch with Library Adult Services Manager Janet Winrotte by emailing
