Founders Day Ceremony This Saturday

The City’s annual Founders Day Ceremony is Saturday, at 10:00 am in Forest-Llewellyn Cemetery. The public is invited to attend in the event “where the past meets the present.” As part of the ceremony, the City will be unveiling three new gravestones 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. Additionally, American Legion Post 20 MacDougall-Lowe will be participating in the event by raising the flag of the United States. The event is hosted by the Friends of Forest-Llewellyn Cemetery Committee.
