Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR has a Busy Weekend

Fort GreeneVille had four American Revolutionary War Soldier grave dedications on Sept 16. Three grave markers were dedicated in the New Madison, Ohio are and one in Versailles, OH.

  • William Brodrick in Old Friendship Cemetery.
  • Peter Rush in First Universal Cemetery.
  • Joseph Wiley in Providence Cemetery.
  • Zachariah Hole in Black Swamp/Greenlawn Cemetery.

We were fortunate to have descendants present at the dedications for Brodrick, Rush and Hole. VFW Post 7262 representative was also present due to the VFW's generous donation for purchasing markers.

Fort GreeneVille participated in the annual SUNshine 5K fundraiser. Monies generated from the 5K went to Angel Paws. Angel Paws is an organization that gifts service dogs to local Veterans. Present at the 5K was the service dog that the chapter raised money towards last year.
