Sharpsburg dedicates town clock

May 24, 1998|By TERRY TALBERT

SHARPSBURG - During Memorial Day activities on Saturday, Sharpsburg officially dedicated a $15,000 clock donated to the town by resident Roy Ebersole in memory of his wife, Edna "Pansy" Ebersole.

Ebersole was honoring Pansy's last wish before her death Oct. 6 at age 79.

The 15-foot, 6-inch forest green clock with gold trim already was in place at the southeast corner of Main and Mechanic streets in Town Square when Roy Ebersole, family members and political dignitaries gathered for the dedication.

The Ebersoles' pastor, the Rev. Jerry Carpenter of the Sharpsburg Church of the Brethren, said the couple routinely helped others in need. He said Roy Ebersole has continued that tradition since his wife's death.

Town officials thanked Ebersole for the gift, which is the keystone of the renovated Town Square.

The Square, which features three new redwood-and-wrought-iron benches and three trash receptacles the town bought for a total of $3,000, also was dedicated Saturday.
