2-21-2015 QH John Dickinson Wreath Ceremony covered by News-Journal

Blizzard conditions did not stop representatives of QHHPF and Friends of the John Dickinson Mansion from paying tribute to Delaware founding father John Dickinson on February 21, 2015, the 207th anniversary of his death, with the reading of a eulogy and laying of a wreath upon his grave. Prior to the laying of the wreath, inside the Wilmington Friends Meeting House QHHPF President Bayard Marin read a eulogy composed by leading Dickinson scholar Jane Calvert of the University of Kentucky.  A driving snow and strong winds did not stop the assembled from proceeding to Dickinson’s resting place in the Friends graveyard. Afterward, the group warmed with hot coffee and tea and delicious baked goods prepared by Sonia Marin. The event was covered by the Wilmington News Journal in the article, a link to which is directly below. See photos of the event further below. (Photos by Jim Bierbaum)
