Voices from the Grave” Pioneer Ghost Walk at Cook’s Cemetery

2020 has been the year of canceled events in Sedona, but there is one event you won’t need to miss being offered by the Sedona Historical Society, a fall-appropriate and Covid-safe outdoor cemetery walk called “Voices from the Grave”.

On Friday and Saturday, October 23rd and 24th, a limited number of fortunate ticket holders will be going back in time to meet pioneers who lived and worked in Red Rock country, and who experienced triumph and tragedy while carving out a life and some adventure in this place we call Sedona.

These “Voices from the Grave” will be part of an open air “ghost walk” with re-enactments by professional actors at the graveyard where the original pioneers are interred; Cook’s Cedar Glade Cemetery off Airport Road in West Sedona. Participants will be escorted with Covid safety protocols in place from one pioneer grave site to another for history and some hilarious or heartbreaking story-telling by select “ghosts” as they recount their lives and adventures in the Sedona of the past.

On the walk you’ll meet a mother who taught the Sedona School teacher a thing or two about school ground punishment; Sedona’s first litter lifter and beloved town drunk; and the dry-farmer who carved out a piece of his homestead as a cemetery for the remains of little Pearl Schnebly.

To minimize the number of participants per show and provide a Covid-safe experience, there will be two shows, one at 3 p.m. and another at 4:30 p.m. each day. Tickets are $20/person and must be purchased in advance. This program is not recommended for children under 13 years of age. Tickets include trick and treat swag bags for each ticket holder. As a fund-raiser, tickets are not refundable and no rain date has been set.

Masks will be required and social distancing will be imposed with assistance from masked ‘pallbearer’ escorts.

This event is hosted by the Board members of the Sedona Historical Society as a mini-fundraiser to further the preservation and sharing of local history during these hard economic times. It is also a way to introduce to residents and visitors the Society’s ownership and responsibility to maintain Sedona’s two pioneer cemeteries. “It is ironic that the first burial in this cemetery was a victim of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.” said Janeen Trevillyan, the Society’s Board president. “Many Sedonans are not familiar with these cemeteries which are the final resting place of the historic families who pioneered this region,”

Cook’s Cedar Glade Cemetery is where Sedona Schnebly, the town’s namesake is buried along with members of other pioneer families such as Henry Cook, Jesse Purtymun, James Jackson, Margaret Pirtle, Nettie Van Deren, and ‘Red’ Hedges,

Shondra Jepperson, a Society board member, actor, singer and producer has stepped forward to orchestrate this event. She has conjured up a superbly talented group of other local actors to join her in these re-enactments, including Michael Peach, Dev Ross, Craig Hartley, Teri Bays and Tricia Greer and James Ball. According to Jepperson, one of the fulfilling parts of creating this event has been learning more about local history thanks to Sedona Heritage Museum volunteer Clancy Sage, who gathered the research on the pioneers being portrayed in the show.

Board member Michele Zahner with Jepperson are securing sponsorships for the show to insure that the Society and Museum reap proceeds that will help them continue their mission. To date, named sponsors are El Portal Hotel, Sefton Engineering, and an anonymous donor. Additional sponsorships are available by contacting Michele at 202-997-3234.

Tickets are $20 per person and are now available at SedonaMuseum.org. For more information call 928-282-7038.

Prescott Farmers Market -Saturdays @ YRMC Miller Valley Lot
Oct 24 @ 7:30 am

Name of Event: Prescott Farmers Market

Where: YRMC parking lot, 900 Irons Springs Road, corner of Iron Springs Road and Miller Valley Road

When: Every Saturday through October, 7:30AM – 12:00PM

Beginning Saturday, September 5, 2020, the Prescott Farmers Market (PFM) will move from Yavapai College to its new location in the new parking lot at Yavapai Regional Medical Center at 900 Iron Springs Road, at the corner of Iron Springs and Miller Valley Roads (next to True Value). This is where YRMC staff parks during the week. It’s vacant on Saturdays and the perfect spot for us to conduct the market.
*This is NOT at the YRMC hospital lot on Willow Creek Rd, nor the backside of YRMC by YMCA where the market was a few years ago.
PFM Saturday hours will remain the same from 7:30AM to noon through our Summer season, ending October 31, 2020.
Due to the continued risk associated with COVID-19, PFM has implemented safety measures to help protect the health of customers and vendors, including hand-washing stations and booths spaced to allow for physical distancing. PFM requires its staff and vendors to wear face coverings and requests that customers to do so as well. As always, no pets are allowed in the market.
Summer is an exciting season in northern Arizona. Customers can find a variety of fresh summer vegetables, grass-fed beef, eggs, flowers, baked goods, ice cream, coffee, and prepared foods like burritos, tamales, and samosas, and other local goods. All markets run by PFM are producer-only farmers markets, meaning every item sold is either grown or produced by the seller here in Arizona. The majority of goods come from within a 30-mile radius of Prescott, though some vendors do travel from other parts of Yavapai County and Maricopa County.
At all market locations, customers can swipe their SNAP/EBT, debit or credit cards to receive tokens at the information booth. Double Up Food Bucks are unlimited for the time being. This means that households can double any amount of SNAP benefits when purchasing fresh vegetables and fruits at PFM markets. All vendors accept cash. Participants of the WIC and CSFP programs are able to receive Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks for immediate use at all market locations as well.
As a vital part of the economy, the mission of PFM is to support and expand local agriculture, cultivate a healthy community and increase access to affordable local food.
