Second Saturday
"People of Pine Ridge Cemetery: Plot by Plot "
with Clara Pasko and Ron Graham

  As a Bay County Historical Society Librarian, Clara Pasko was often frustrated at the lack of information available to patrons researching relatives buried at Bay City’s Pine Ridge Cemetery. Records were scattered--or did not exist--and there were many discrepancies in names, data and burial locations.

  What began three years ago as an attempt to transcribe and organize the existing records has become an ongoing quest for Clara, Ron and several dedicated volunteers.  The result is a new database with both alphabetized and plot-by-plot listings, which will be added to the BCHS website and available to researchers in the near future.

   Join Clara and Ron as they present the Pine Ridge Cemetery story, and the efforts to preserve and maintain this historic site.

River of Time Living History Encampment
Veterans Memorial Park
 This annual event held on the banks of the Saginaw River in Veterans Memorial Park draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in Michigan's past.  Representing time periods from pre-contact Native Americans, Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, Civil War, and the great World Wars, this free, family-oriented, educational event is a wonderful way to look back at simpler if not more difficult times.
Friday September 25th is Education Day!
