The Oakwood Cemetery in Troy is hosting a scavenger hunt for adults June 14. Blurbage:

Pick up your hunt instructions between 5-6pm at the Earl Chapel, where your start time will be recorded. All entries must be turned in by 7:30. Hunt on your own or form a team of up to 4 people. Prizes will be given for the individual and team with the most correct answers with the quickest times and a drawing for most correct answers if more than one person has the same number of correct answers. Enjoy local craft beer samples provided by Rare Form Brewery. Your beer ticket includes several tastings and a full glass of your choice of beer.

June 14 is a Thursday. Tickets for the scavenger hunt are $15, and the beer tasting is $15. The cemetery says reservations are "strongly" recommended.

Mausoleums
Also coming up at Oakwood: A tour of the cemetery's "opulent mausoleums" with historian Michael Barrett on Saturday, June 16. "He will tell us about the wealthy families that rest here and give us a rare look inside some of these beautiful memorials." Tickets are $15.
