In a cooperative effort with Lake View Cemetery, the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame will conduct a walking tour to the grave sites of the 10 CSHOF inductees interred at the well-known Jamestown cemetery.
The tour will be on Aug. 5 at 6:30 p.m.
The tour will visit the burial plots of Ben Bishop, Oscar Carlson, Jimmy Clark, Dan Feather, Tony LeVoie, Johnny Newman, John O'Neil, Lyle Parkhurst, Bill Present, and Clayt Webeck. CSHOF docents will offer presentations about each inductee and their contributions to sports in Chautauqua County.
Randy Anderson, left, president of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, and Hugh Golden, right, administrative assistant to the superintendent of Lake View Cemetery, discuss plans for the upcoming walking tour featuring inductees of the CSHOF. They are kneeling next to the grave marker of Dan Feather, one of the inductees.
Although reservations are not mandatory, they are appreciated. Interested persons should call Lake View Cemetery at 665-3206 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tour participants should meet at the cemetery maintenance building near the Marvin Parkway entrance at the north end of the cemetery. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather.
