Grab a (virtual) shovel and join the Hamblin family and friends this Saturday, Sept. 28, at 5 p.m., at the Greenville Cemetery.

“Meet Me At the Graveyard” features the relatives of Jim Hamblin: grandfather William L. Hamblin, father William J. Hamblin and half-brother William K. Hamblin. The very much alive Jim Hamblin will also be on hand to help “dig up” his family history at the event sponsored by the Greenville Cy Hall Memorial Museum.

No spooky audios this year, said Travis Rubke, spokesman for the museum. The museum has acquired a new sound system.

Festivities move to the Greenville Masonic Hall on Main Street at 5:45 p.m. for hors d’oeuvres and the museum’s annual soup contest and dinner.  Prizes include recognition on a perpetual trophy and a complimentary membership to the museum for next year.

All soup entries must be at the Masonic Hall by 5 p.m., Sept. 28.

Tickets for the Graveyard event and applications for the soup contest are available at the

Museum, located on the corner of Main and Mill streets in Greenville when the museum is open, Friday to Sunday, noon to 4 p.m., or from board members.

For more information, contact Travis Rubke at 284-6473.
