The dedication of a new plaque in honor of Revolutionary War veteran Charles Denny on Saturday, Sept. 7, was a special occasion for the Village of Mokena, but the dedication coincided with another event connected to the land where Denny is laid to rest: This year marks the 80th anniversary of the dedication of Pioneer Cemetery.
