This weekend, I was really excited about working on a story and video project about the Sylvania Township Association Cemetery.

The cemetery is located on Convent Blvd., right across from Lourdes, but it's fairly easy to miss if you're driving by. But that was exactly how I learned about it in the first place.

I enjoy reading about history, so I was completely excited when I approached Tedd Long from the Sylvania Area Historical Society, about my interest in reporting about the cemetery.

Tedd contacted others from the society – Mimi Malcolm, Polly Cooper, and Gaye Gindy, and they met up with me and Blade photographer Katie Rausch on Saturday afternoon, for a tour.
