William Blanchfield Memorial Ceremony

The Sons & Daughters of Erin has  scheduled its annual Blanchfield Memorial Ceremony  Sunday, March 18 at noon.
The grave site is located in the Veterans Section near the cemetery office of Mountain View Cemetery, 435 Stoker Ave, Reno, Nevada 89503
We are once again expecting to have several descendants of William Blanchfield. Also, we will be honored to have bagpiper Sean Cummings performing for us at the ceremony.
Here are some stories from previous ceremonies we have held:
