DAR Chapter presents wreath laying ceremony to honor World War I Veterans

The Horseshoe Prairie Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will present a special wreath laying in honor of Hamilton County World War I Veterans. The 100th Anniversary of that war is being commemorated by DAR Chapters across the nation.

The event will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Hamilton County Courthouse Square Veterans Memorial on the west side of the Square. A brief ceremony will include special readings and musical presentations including a soloist, bugler and bagpipe.

Chapter organizers would like to invite family member descendants of WWI veterans to attend the ceremony as DAR honors these veterans of what was known as the “Great War” and salute their commitment to our country. Horseshoe Prairie representatives will place the wreath, donated by Adriene’s Flowers & Gifts, in memorial to the veterans. The public is invited to attend.
