KAWARTHA LAKES-For the past 25 years Keith and Linda LeBlanc have made the pilgrimage from Dunsford to Memphis to mark the passing of Evlis Presley on August 16th. The singer died in 1977 of a heart attack. To say they have become well known as some of Elvis’ biggest fans would be an understatement. Staff at Graceland know them by name. They are Honour Guards for the procession of fans as the enter the grounds of Graceland during the vigil to mark his death. The main floor of their home is a shrine to the “king”. This year the pair could not make it to Memphis so they held a vigil at their home in Dunsford. They invited Kawartha411 in for a tour. Take a look!
