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.

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
