May 20, Saturday – Not quite Pokémon searching or a poker run, but sort of…  Beginning at 9:00 AM the Geneva Historical Society is holding a Scavenger Hunt where you compete against other folks as you solve puzzles, drive to historic locations, find answers/take photos, eat a scenic lunch, and try to win a prize.  1st Place - $50, 2nd - $25, 3rd - $10.  Reservation deadline is May 15.  Call or email: 407-947-4412 or GHGSEvents@aol.com.   Leave name, phone, & how many people.  You will receive a confirmation call-back.   Cost: $10/person (includes lunch).  Bring digital phone or camera and a car, of course.  The Hunt begins and ends at beautiful Ft. Lane Park, 2400 Ft. Lane Rd, Geneva, and benefits the Geneva Historical Society.

November 4, Saturday – Don’t miss the tradition of the Geneva Cemetery Tour.  This, the seventh cemetery tour, begins promptly at 6:30 PM and will last a little over an hour.  Follow your Lantern Leader through the Geneva Cemetery to the final resting places of some of Geneva’s long-departed citizens and hear them tell their story.  Admission is free but a donation to the Geneva Historical Society is always appreciated.  Refreshments after the tour.  Bring a flashlight to assist you on your return to your car.  The cemetery is located at the end of Cemetery Rd., off 1st Street.  No need to sign up - just come.
