Dorothy Albrecht Medals Awarded



In December 2007, the people who participated in all five Live Oaks and Dead Folks cemetery tours were given the Dorothy Albrecht Medal. Pictured above are Paulina Kearney, Bill Stein, Dorothy Albrecht, Patty Simmons, Tracey Wegenhoft, and Bill Mosley. Kearney, Wegenhoft, and Mosley acted in all five tours. Simmons worked behind the scenes, helping set up and manage the tours. Stein wrote and directed all five tours. The medal was named for Albrecht because she was instrumental in getting the tours started. Ironically, she did not receive a medal this year because she missed one of the tours with an illness.
