Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution Busy This Holiday Season in Many Ways.

Fort GreeneVille Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) recently had a Christmas wreath dedication at the Darke County Veterans Memorial marker at the Darke County Courthouse. The wreath is in honor of all Darke County Veterans and active duty military.

Another wreath sponsored by Fort GreeneVille DAR will be dedicated on December 16 for Zachary Lansdowne at Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC. The wreath is part of the Wreaths Across America Program. Lansdowne was a US Navy Lieutenant Commander who was killed in the crash of the USS Shenandoah.

Fort GreeneVille DAR has also donated $200 to Greenville native Kenton Stacy. U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Stacy is at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, after he was struck by an IED while clearing a hospital in Syria. He was severely injured while assigned to the Operation Inherent Resolve campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Members also decorated Christmas trees in the Garst Museum military room and the Shawnee Prairie Preserve and Nature Center. Besides the tree decorating, members volunteered at the Darke County Parks' 10th Annual Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland event.

Wrapping up the holiday season, the chapter had its annual Christmas Luncheon at the St. Clair Manor. Following the luncheon, members went to Montage with mitten donations for the FISH mitten tree.

Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
