Posted in: News

The March 13th meeting of the Halifax Resolves Chapter was quite busy with multiple people receiving recognition, the reading of the chapter Knight Essay winner, and concluded by an interesting presentation about U.S. Flags.

Preston Fortin was recognized with his Supplemental Certificate in honor of his ancestor Simon Lane.  Jamie Rook was presented with the Roger Sherman Award for his stellar work on the brochure and posters.  Guest Maddie Hart, a junior at Nash Central High School, was invited to read her chapter-winning Knight Essay on Joseph Warren, “Activist Without Acclaim.”

The Halifax Resolves President, Bill Riggan, was presented with the SAR Grave Marking medal by Steve Avent, the NE Region Vice-President. To qualify for the Compatriot Grave Marking Medal a compatriot must have participated in a prominent role during the planning and execution of grave markings in at least 15 events.

The meeting concluded with the night’s guest speaker, Gary Lee Hall, who gave an interesting lecture on, “Flags of the U.S. from the Lost Colony to Present.”
