Each year on the third Thursday in July the Board conducts a tour of the grave sites of significant figures from Edmonds history. This year's tour highlighted past mayors of Edmonds. Here current Cemetery Board chair Jerry Janacek tells the story of Mayor Fred Fourtner, who held the office from 1927-1933, and again from 1937-1949, making him the longest-serving mayor in the history of Edmonds.
