First award of ECMOH

034.jpg

On August 29th 2010 the first presentation of the ECMOH took place, with approx 80 relatives of Zachariah C. Pearson ( 1821-1891) in attendance , the medal was presented to his surviving family.
The family took a great deal of interest in the ceremony and the presentation was the climax of a large scale family gathering and celebration that included a carnival and tree planting ceremony in the city of Hull. The carnival attracted approx 2000-3000 people and the Lord Mayor and other local government figures were in attendance. members Chris & Michael Dowling were unable to attend due to a long standing prior engagement and Peter Rossi was unable to attend due to being injured in his native Italy shortly before he was due to travel.
Please note that more imagery is available on my facebook page , the imagery is viewable to non members.
