Marietta Ohio Celebrates 229th Anniversary of Founding

L to R: Marietta SAR President Steve Frash; 1st Vice President Daniel Beebe

On the 229th Anniversary of the Founding of Marietta, a Flag Raising Ceremony was held on April 7th, 2017, at the Start Westward Monument in the Muskingum Park of Marietta, Ohio.

Braving the rain, Marietta Kiwanis Club member Joe Grimm, with the help of the Marietta Chapter Sons of the American Revolution Color Guard, lowered all of the Northwest Territory flags: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, as well as the National Colors, and replaced them with new ones.

In addition to supplying the flags for the event, the Kiwanis provided new flags to the Campus Martius Museum in Marietta.
