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
