I met Jen Kehrer a little over two months ago when I did research on the people enslaved at Scarborough House during its first several decades. Since then, she has been a committed cheerleader for Lane Street Project. Today, when attempts to secure assistance from a V.F.W. post fell through, Kehrer took it upon herself to make sure that Vick and Odd Fellows’ veterans were honored. She and small band of others, including 15 year-old Boy Scout P.J., came out in the drear and chill of the morning to pay respects.
Kehrer and Scarborough House are teaming up with Lane Street Project to present our first-ever clean-up in honor of Juneteenth. P.J will be there June 19. Will you?
