For Elbert Edwards

A memorial service for Elbert Edwards, a member of the East Hampton Village Board and a 12th-generation member of one of East Hampton’s founding families, will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church. The Rev. John Ames, the former minister of the church, will be in attendance. Light refreshments will be served in the session house following the service.

Mr. Edwards, who died last month, was a trustee of the church. In addition to longtime tenure on the village board, he was an active member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, a former president of the South End Cemetery Association, a trustee of the East Hampton Historical Society, and a member of the Mayflower Society and the Lost Tribe of Accabonac.
