Meeting minutes from each monthly meeting are approved at the following meeting and at that time are then available upon request of the EACC Secretary.

Memorial Fund and Aid for the Family of 

Theron and Cindy Blakeslee

While taking tender care of her husband Theron, in his final days of life with terminal cancer, Cindy Blakeslee collapsed and was rushed to Munson Hospital where she passed away on Wednesday April 11, 2018.

Theron's struggle ended three days later on Saturday, April 14th as he joined Cindy to start their life together again in eternity. Their light and memories will shine on for their children Megan and Kinter, and for us!

Cindy and Theron served in many volunteer capacities within our community. They were both avid supporters of our monthly concerts. Cindy was a very involved EACC member. She served as chairperson for the Emergency Fund. Her compassion and kindness to those who had fallen upon hard times was plain to see in all her generous actions.

Children Megan and Kinter Blakeslee will be faced with medical and household bills, and more. If you would like to help, please consider a gift to 

The Blakeslee Family Fund 

The Huntington National Bank,
P.O Box 238, 10210 W. Front Street

Empire, MI 49630.

Any amount you can spare will help make their journey a bit easier, and your kindness may lighten the devastating sadness of losing both their mother and their father.
