Descendants of St Martin Publisher/Politician José Lake, Sr. host family reunion

The children of José H. Lake, Sr. (1925-1976) held a family reunion recently in Philipsburg, 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 based on other Caribbean islands, in Europe and in the USA that were unable to visit the St. Martin homeland for the weekend celebration were communicated with via the Internet.
