Max Carter will lead a (day called) Memorial Day cemetery tour at 10:00 a.m. on Fifth Month, 27. The tour will cover not only the usual themes of the day but also highlight the contributions of burial ground residents to  peace and justice work. Following the tour, the North Carolina Friends Historical Society will host a reception for the launch of Gertrude Beal’s and Max Carter’s book, “Stories from a Quaker Graveyard,” published by the New Garden Cemetery Association. The book includes brief essays about nearly four dozen of the people interred in the cemetery.
