Ohio Society SAR Fall Board Meeting – Point Pleasant, WV
The Ohio Society SAR held its Fall 2016 Board Meeting at the Sacred Heart Church in Point Pleasant, West Virginia on Saturday, October 8, 2016. Over 25 compatriots were in attendance, representing 14 of the state society’s 24 chapters. Ohio Society State President Col. (Ret) Donald C. McGraw, Jr. chaired the meeting.
The state’s Executive Committee met at the same location on Friday evening, with 4 of the 5 committee members present. Preceding the meeting, a buffet dinner was enjoyed by many members in attendance. The Ohio Society SAR Ladies Auxiliary also gathered for a brief meeting and social activities.
For the past several years, the Ohio Society has been holding its Fall meetings in Gallipolis, Ohio, across the Ohio River from Point Pleasant. However, due to limited meeting facilities in the area, the Point Pleasant Chapter of the West Virginia Society has graciously made available the site of their Battle Days activities to the Ohio Society.
