RMAC Seeks ‘Buried Treasure’

RMAC Seeks ‘Buried Treasure’

The Rockaway Music and Arts Council (RMAC) will host a trip on May 19 to Greenwood Cemetery on Brooklyn.

"This long-time New York landmark is where our famous historical, musical, literary, artists and heroes are buried," says Shirley Golub, a spokesperson for the RMAC. "Surrounding us will be a garden-like atmosphere where there are antique buildings, fabulous sculpture and many artifacts to discover."

An art historian will lead the tour of the cemetery, and the group will be joined by Patrick Clark, a local stained-glass artist, who will discuss the stained glass windows in the chapel.

The trip will include lunch at the Elia restaurant. After lunch, the group will be able to chose between the Enrico Caruso Museum or the pre-Revolutionary War Dutch building, the Lott House.

Those interested in further information about the trip or who want to make reservations should call 474-6760. The cost of the trip is $58 for members and $62 for non-members.
