The City of Portage Historic Preservaton Commission has created a fun quiz to accompany the Virtual 2020 Silver Lake Cemetery Tour. The virtual tour can be viewed on YouTube. As you journey through the virtual tour of historic figures buried at the Silver Lake Cemetery, see if you can answer the below questions about their lives.
 
For a chance to win a prize, submit your completed quiz by midnight on December 31, 2020. There will be 5 individuals randomly drawn from the quiz submissions that will win $20 in Portage Green Gift Certificates, which can be used just like cash at participating Portage Chamber member businesses. You do not have to have all the answers correct to be eligible to win the prize; however, you do need to submit a valid name and email address for question 8. Must be 18 years of age or older to be eligible to win prize. Winners will be contacted in January 2021. 

Enjoy the tour!
