Founders Day 2021 Virtual Ceremony Now Available to Watch Online

The City of Kirksville’s annual Founders Day 2021 Virtual Ceremony is now available to watch online. As part of the ceremony, three new gravestones are dedicated to replace those damaged by vandalism, or where none had previously existed. The new gravestones mark the final resting places of Don Carlos Hewitt, former Mayor William Gibbons, and Civil War veteran Wesley C. Fickel. The event was hosted by the City’s Friends of Forest-Llewellyn Cemetery Committee. See the ceremony on the City of Kirksvile’s Facebook and Youtube pages.
