Come enjoy stories about the early history of Sacramento. Wear your "Ask an Atheist" t-shirt to let people know atheists care about our City, too. I'll have t-shirts there ($10, all sizes). The most important thing we can do, as atheists, is come out of the closet. If someone does ask a question you can't answer, feel free to say you don't know the answer. It's not about persuasion at all; it's about being visible. Let people know their church lies to them about atheists being evil. And what better location than a cemetery!!

Saturday morning tours are for people of all ages. Free. Begins at 10 am at the main gate at 1000 Broadway. Donations are always appreciated.

The photo (right) shows where Mark Hopkins is buried. Learn about this railroad tycoon. Also see the markers designating burials of doctors who died treating people during a cholera epidemic, our own Casey Jones who died saving passengers, founders of our city, Donner Party survivors, a genuine Mayflower family, and more extraordinary people who claimed Sacramento as their home, and often paid the price to keep it a safe home for others. Historical and inspirational tour by a well-versed docent ready to take your questions.

Parking within the cemetery is very limited. Please park across the street at the Sacramento Works building and enter the Cemetery at the main gate on 10th Street and Broadway.

Feel free to ask questions below in the comments. I hope to see many of you there! It should be fun, and such a lighthearted way to be an activist for your community!
