The Rural Historic Cemetery Tour of the New Bielau, Oakland and Cheetham Cemeteries is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. The following local historians and cemetery custodians will share the history of early settlers and point out some of the graves:  Doris Albright and Allen and Mariette Bellamy for New Bielau, Butch Strunk for Oakland, and Regena Williamson for Cheetham.


Once again, Colorado County Transit will provide transportation from the Columbus High School Gymnasium for $10 per person, round trip. If you live closer to Weimar, Rock Island or Sheridan, you may want to drive and park at the New Bielau Trinity Church and ride the bus from New Bielau to Oakland and Cheetham Cemeteries round trip for $6 per person. Taking the bus helps to keep everyone together, eliminates parking issues and is also environmentally friendly.  Riding the bus is not a requirement.

We must have a final count for Colorado County Transit by April 3 so they know how many buses will be needed.
