ST. MARTIN – The children of José H. Lake, Sr. held a family reunion here last weekend. The descendants of the late St. Martin newspaper publisher, labor activist, politician, and patriot, participated in a private prayer at their patriarch’s gravesite; picnicked at Le Galleon Beach; and attended a dedication service at the Catholic Church in South Reward. Attending the services and activities were Lake children, grandchildren, one great grandchild, and additional family members.
This is the second family reunion of the Lake, Sr. descendants. The siblings and their offspring that were unable to visit the St. Martin homeland for the weekend celebration were communicated with via the Internet.
