The Minorcan Cultural Society had their annual memorial mass for deceased members and family members at Tolomato Cemetery on Saturday, November 20. This was a particularly special occasion since the society had recently donated new signs and benches to the cemetery.
Things were also different this year because a contingent from the Haitian American Historical Society drove all the way up from Miami to attend the mass. The HAHS and the Haitian ambassador had donated a bench in honor of General George Biassou, the Haitian liberator and General in the Spanish Army, and this bench and its plaque were also dedicated at the event.
The video below will show you a few of the day's highlights. Notice the heavy coats and jackets. Winter unexpectedly arrived in St Augustine this weekend!
