Memorial Ceremony For Leon S. Locke

To honor past Wave Publisher Leon Locke, the staff of the 108-year-old community newspaper has organized a memorial ceremony on Friday, March 16, 2001 at 5 p.m. on Beach 116 Street (meet in front of West End Realty).

The American Flag will be flown at half-staff and testimonials will be given in honor of Leon. The community at-large is invited to the ceremony.

Poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of the first ceremony this past Tuesday, March 6.

As a reminder, anyone wishing to honor Leon’s memory is asked to make a donation in his name to the Rockaway Museum or to the charity of his or her choice.
