In July 2021, chapter representatives were active at the following activities (either in person or via Zoom):
- July 3 Commemorative grave marking of Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lightfoot Lee, at Mount Airy Plantation in Warsaw, VA (a Virginia State SAR level event)
- July 4 60th Annual March to the Tomb and Wreath Laying event at Washington’s Tomb at Mt. Vernon, VA (an event led by the George Washington chapter)
- July 5 Commemorative grave marking of Declaration of Independence signer Benjamin Harrison V, at Berkeley Plantation in Charles City, VA (a Virginia State SAR level event)
- July 10 Battle of Cricket Hill re-enactment and plaque dedication ceremony in Hudgins, VA (a Virginia SAR Presidential Initiative event) [see photo below of plaque at original surviving earthworks] (The speaker noted that this was perhaps the first action after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and militarily significant in that by chasing the British out of Virginia, the Virginia troops were then able to join George Washington’s Continental Army to contribute to their numbers and prowess in the challenging NY and NJ arenas.)
- July 17 Anniversary of the Fairfax Resolves at the historic Pohick Church in Lorton, VA (an event sponsored by the Fairfax Resolves chapter)
- July 24 Patriot grave marking event at New Jerusalem Lutheran Church Cemetery in Lovettsville, VA (an event led by the Fairfax Resolves chapter)
Also this month, the 2021 National Congress of the SAR Society was a meeting held in Renton, WA, where chapter member Pete Davenport received the SAR’s highest honor, the Minuteman Award.
