Elder John Leland-Interpretive Sign Cheshire, Mass.
Erected June 10, 2016
On June 8th I left Ohio in a rented pickup truck hauling a beautiful interpretive sign dedicated to the memory of John Leland. In Emmaus, PA. I met Gary Stinnett and we loaded his tools into the truck and continued our journey toward Mass. Pastor Aaron Rodgerson flew in from Missouri and met us in Mass. The marker was erected on Friday, June 9th, downtown, near the Cheese Press monument and right on the Appalachian Trail. The current, and a former long-time pastor (of the church Leland pastored) met with us, as well as the chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen in Cheshire. Gary and Aaron did a professional job and the town and the Baptists were very appreciative of the new marker. On Friday evening we held a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedicated the marker.
