Re-dedication of the Dickinson Monument
One of the more important projects undertaken by the RTHS this year was the restoration of the Dickinson Monument in Beechwood Cemetery. Members will recall seeing the monument during our excursion to Beechwood in 2011 and its less than sterling state of repair. The top was broken off and many of the inscriptions were no longer readable. Our project involved replacing the top, a light cleaning, and placing a boulder with two granite plaques near the monument. The granite plaques are being inscribed with the names of the family members and their many achievements in Manotick, Ottawa, and the Parliament of Canada
This work is nearing completion and you are invited to attend the re-dedication and the unveiling of the new family plaques at Beechwood Cemetery, Section 22, Plot 57, on Saturday, 30 June 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Period costume would be appropriate.
The ceremony will take place rain or shine. Questions to Brian Earl, 613-692-2371.
