Chapter Monthly Business Meetings:
American Legion Post 11
279 Canal Street
Lancaster, OH 43130.
Third Saturday of Every Month
*Attention Compatriots: All meetings and events listed are subject to change or cancellation due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Please check appropriate websites for updates and/or your email for announcements before the event.
The SAR has adapted and allowed us to continue our Color Guard events in a limited fashion as we continue into 2021 with the virus. But there's an opportunity as well for those working on their Color Guard Medals to still obtain credit by attending Color Guard events virtually. Several National SAR Color Guard events are being planned in the coming weeks.
For those who feel comfortable in proximity with others, we will be following Covid guidelines and our Color Guard will meet at Al and Jan Gummere's home basement. This has already worked well for our indoor winter events. The address is 6305 Lancaster-Circleville Road (Route 188), and again, we thank them for their hospitality.
Keep in mind, you do NOT have to attend with us to get credit, but may do this in the comfort and safety of your own home. Just contact Bob Hill and let him know you will be or have attended an event (with a picture is preferred), and you will get Color Guard credit.
However, some criteria must be met:
1) You must register for the event.
2) You must be dressed in kit (and/or a suit if presenting a wreath).
3) You must be acknowledged online or on the program as a group or individual.
4) You must take an active part, not just attendance, by participating in the virtual Color Guard, or presenting a wreath, or a speaking part.
Virtual Color Guard Events
Saturday, February 27th, we will attend the commemoration of the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge, Currie, NC. Muster at Al's at 9:30 AM. Ceremony begins at 10:00 AM. Deadline to register is Feb. 8th. https://www.ncssar.org/event/battle-moores-creek-2/
Tentative is the 240th Anniversary of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, probably Saturday, March 13th, but that is not yet confirmed. Stay alert for an email if it is to proceed.
Hopefully, in April we will be able to begin some "live" events.
