Memorial relocation

I want to share with all of you an article that appeared in today's (June 29, 2023) Reminder publication that is distributed free to thousands of area homes in many surrounding towns of East Longmeadow. Two weeks ago, through vast efforts of Bruce Moore and Tom Behan of the E L Historical Society, and with the help of equipment operated by Chris White, the memorial stone in front of the red maple donated by the Class of '71 at graduation was given a more visible presence. When I first photographed the tree and plaque in 2016, all was looking pretty good. In the convening time to the present, the Norway red maple's roots had overtaken the granite stone placed there by classmates Charlie Maurer and the late Mike Keane. Many, many thanks to these men for helping preserve our legacy.
