In 1971, a historical marker was placed in Boykins, VA at the entrance of the Beechwood Cemetery in honor and loving memory of our first Ruritan National President, Dr. J.M. Bland. Almost 50 years later, the marker has been refurbished by the family and the Holland District Foundation. We invite you to attend the unveiling and re-dedication on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at noon. If you are unable to stand, please plan to bring a lawn chair.
