Camp Charlotte 10th Anniversary
The three Chapter presidents, Rick Hartinger, Tony Robinson, and Jim Rivers stand next to the Camp Charlotte Chapter Charter dated 2007.
To celebrate its tenth Anniversary the Camp Charlotte Chapter invited all living charter members back to Circleville for a special meeting of the membership that included a group picture for the chapter history books. Six of the original eleven were able to attend.
Rick Hartinger as Secretary and Historian, and past chapter President read a history of the chapter to those in attendance and a brief patriot history of the local members. Many of the patriots are buried in Pickaway County and were part of the early history of the County. Highlights for the chapter included the Color Guard leading the Circleville Pumpkin Show, youth entries that won national awards, early sponsorship of Wreaths Across America, patriot grave markings, and a minuteman statue posted at the front of the cemetery. The Chapter has been awarded the Distinguished Chapter Streamer from the Ohio Society in seven of the eight years the Chapter was eligible.
Congratulations to this growing and active chapter on its tenth year of local involvement.
