June 30th, at 11 am, at Cullen Park, the new anchor monument, will be dedicated in memory of Fritz and Em Socie, long time Point Place residents. This anchor sets right at the entrance of the park, near summit street, giving the sense that this park and Point Place are a nautical community.

The anchor was donated by their son, Ken Socie, also a life long Point Place resident. This project was supported by the Visions of Cullen Park, with the great cooperation of the City of Toledo Parks.

There is an engraved stone at the corner of the base nearest the sidewalk, for all passerby to read the inscription- “In memory of Fritz and EM Socie 2012”.

In attendance will be Denny Garvin – Commissioner of Parks, Lindsay Webb – Point Place’s Councilwoman, along with Ken Socie and the entire Socie “clan” and other “dignitaries”!

All are welcome to attend this greatest historic event of Cullen Park in recent times!
