1944 Honor Roll Dedication

The Fowlerville Library recently received a small envelope with a note and the following piece of paper: 
I am wondering if any of my readers might know of this kind of a ceremony.  It sounds like the scouts were quite active in the community and you might recognize a few names, especially if you've read any of this website.  Deo Blackmer was the son of S.T. Blackmer, the founder of the men's clothing store in Fowlerville that eventually was bought out by Frank Utter and became Utter's Menswear.  Betty Woods was the wife of Tom Woods, owner of Woods Drugs.

If you search on any of these names (upper right hand corner), you will find any articles written about these residents of Fowlerville.

Rev. Ira Cargo was the minister of the Methodist Church. His son Paul and Paul's wife Martha both became Methodist ministers, as did his grandson, Bill.
