Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR 90th Anniversary

Ohio Regent Sharlene Shoaf with Fort Greenville and Commodore Preble Chapter members
Fort GreeneVille Chapter celebrated their 90th anniversary at Turtle Creek Golf Course. The chapter organized in January 1922. The guest speaker was Ohio State DAR Regent Sharlene Shoaf. Madam Regent Shoaf gave a program on Betsy Ross in honor of Flag Day. She also honored the chapter by inducting new officers for the 2012-2014 term. The chapter gave a donation to the State Regent Project.

There were 27 in attendance including members from Commodore Preble DAR chapter, Preble County. After the luncheon, everyone went to the chapter's historical Studabaker Schoolhouse for a flag raising ceremony. Greenville American Legion Post 140 Color Guard raised the flag. Fort GreeneVille chapter presented the Color Guard with a cash donation for their ongoing dedication to our country.

Member Judith Collins gave a flag program on the folding of the flag. The ceremony ended with member Linda Riley leading the members in the singing of "God Bless America". The schoolhouse was open for viewing and the new sign was dedicated.
