Bottled water is to be provided. Reservations are necessary. A donation of $20 per person to the Historic Florida Keys Foundation is recommended. Proceeds are devoted to cemetery restoration.  Participants may enter the cemetery by either the Windsor Street or Frances Street gate and go to the registration table on Second Ave.
