Armed Forces Day Ceremony

What an incredible day celebrating Armed Forces Day honoring Sea Cadet PO1 Susanna Waldorf with the Outstanding Cadet Medal and Certificate presented by Regent Michelle Abbey of the Abigail Wright Chamberlain Chapter DAR. It is always an honor giving our next generation of cadets awards for their achievements and to be able to do it with other chapter leaders as well.

John S. Stone, one of the first black pioneers of Melbourne, founded the present day J.S. Stone Memorial Cemetery in 1921. This is a privately owned cemetery and is the final resting place of many of the area’s pioneers and founders; many of them former slaves, or descendants of slaves, who settled here after the Civil War.
