Doda MemorialWednesday, October 01, 2014 to Wednesday, December 31, 2014
I just wanted to let all of my friends and family know that the Locust Point Civic Association along with Hap Duffy and myself are trying to raise money so that we can redo the memorial to my father at the entrance to the Latrobe Park. If you have been by recently then you know the deplorable condition that it is in. In addition to redoing the original sign they plan on adding my Mother’s name as well so it would be a tribute to both my Mother and Father. I know my Mother would be very pleased. My parents worked tirelessly for years for our community on a civic level as well as on a professional level. They could go out and solicit a couple large donations from a few businesses in the community and that would probably take care of the cost. Anyone that knew my parents know that’s not how they got things done. They were very much a part of the community and whenever anything or anyone was in need, they would go to the people of the community for help. It is in that spirit we would like to have the community show their support for this and have everyone in the community make small donations so when they put the new memorial up it will show the unity and strength of our community. We will be able to say that all the people of locust point contributed to the making of this memorial. I like the idea of our traditional Locust Pointer’s that have been here all their lives and the new families that have come in recent years coming together to support two people that helped create the community that we have today. I just wanted to let everyone know that I fully support this undertaking and hope that the people of our community will support it as well. Please share this information with anyone you feel would have an interest in supporting it. In also wanted to mention that when this was brought up at the LPCA meeting that it was supported 100% and they voted to match whatever donation we received. I believe that shows the support for the history of our community.
If you would like to make a donation you can send a check to the Charles L. Stevens Funeral Home, Inc. 1501 E. Fort Avenue, Locust Point MD 21230, Make checks payable to the Locust Point Civic Association. You can also go online and make a donation http://www.gofundme.com/DodaMemorialFund
