Cincinnati SAR Celebrates Independence Day
The Cincinnati SAR Independence Day celebrations began with assisting Celebrate America! at the Kings Mills Baptist Church on Saturday June 30th. The Howard Miller Memorial Flag Collection was displayed. The Nolan Carson Memorial Color Guard presented the Colors and fired a firelock salute. We also had a display table of Revolutionary War memorabilia and Compatriot Ed Bonniwell gave his Yorktown presentation.
The Cincinnati Chapter’s Nolan Carson Memorial Color Guard marched in both the Madeira Independence Day Parade on July 3rd and the Montgomery Independence Day Parade on July 4th. Camp follower Emma Hartman joined 11 compatriots [Lee Wilkerson, Color Guard Commander; Shaun Smith, Dan Schmitz, Ken Carpenter, Bob Bowers, Brad Jarard, Jack Bredenfoerder, Mike Gunn
Ed Boniwell, Clay Crandall, Chuck Rogers, George Stewart, Gregg Ballman, Jeff Hartman and Jacob Hartman] for both parades and distributed poppy bookmarks to the large exuberant crowds assembled along the parade routes. The Spirit of Patriotism is alive and well in America!
