G32 8RWDate : Saturday 11th February 2012Time : NoonReferring to my recent campaign in November 2011 for A Gravestone for John Herbert McLaughlin, I am delighted to announce that a Celtic Graves Society event with take place on Saturday 11th February 2012.John Herbert McLaughlin was one of the founding fathers of Celtic Football Club and was the Clubs first Chairman.Unfortunately John’s resting place at St. Peters Cemetery lies unmarked but after the generosity of the Celtic Family Worldwide we have raised funds for a fitting and lasting memorial.
The service should not take more than an hour and members of John Herbert McLaughlin family will be in attendance, including some coming as far afield as Canada for the event.
There will be several speeches and anecdotes from members of John’s family as well as representatives from Celtic Football Club about John’s life and his service to both Celtic Football Club and Scottish Football in general.
I would like to extend an invitation to not only those who donated to the campaign to attend but anyone else who is interested in attending the service.
Celtic FC have a home game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC on Saturday 11th February so some of you may be in Glasgow during this time.
After the service, it is expected that we will call at the Celtic Supporters Club, London Road to toast John’s life.
