William Blake To Be Honored

     I am happy to announce that a granite marker has been donated and Richardson's Monument company will engrave the stone in memory of William Blake.  Plans are underway to hold a Dedication Ceremony on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 2 PM at the East Deering Grand Trunk Cemetery.

     Thank you to all of you who sent encouraging words to keep looking for a way to overcome the obstacles to finally honor William Blake for his service during the War of 1812.  I hope that those of you, particularly any Blake descendants, will be able to join in the celebration on October 2nd.

     As plans come together, I will keep readers informed and issue a formal invitation in the weeks to come.
