Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 17 September 2010 00:00

It was fitting that members of the Atlantic Steamer Fire Company stood at the left of the monument, and at the right, the presenters, New York Senator Carl Marcellino, the Rev. Peter Casparian of Christ Church; and Rev. Jeffrey Prey of the First Presbyterian Church. Seated in front with the guests were Co-Pastors Diane and Ray Melograne of the North Shore Assembly of God.
