Compatriots and Friends,
On the 13th of August, the Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution hosted their 3rd Annual Summer Picnic. It was held at the Great Meadows Shelter in Sharon Woods. President Jack Bredenfoerder and Lori, his wife coordinated our traditional picnic lunch.
We were pleased to welcome some very distinguished guests to our picnic this year:
Jim Crane, Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, Department of Ohio Commander
Richard Davis, President of the Ohio Society of the War of 1812
The Nolan Carson Memorial Color Guard members that were present found time in the schedule to practice some Von Steuben style marching and manual of arms movements. This activity was led by Brad Jarard. It should be noted that several members of the Color Guard were penalized by Brad due to poor performance of the drills.
