The annual Elijah P. Lovejoy Week continues today with the Vesper Service at College Avenue Presbyterian Church.  That starts at 4pm and is free to attend.  Monday is the Lovejoy Day ceremony at the Alton City Cemetery. 

Lovejoy Trustee Ed Gray tells The Big Z that will begin at noon with the presentation of flags, followed by the invocation and benediction by Deacon Bill Kessler from St. Ambrose Catholic Church.
