Martin and Burke speak to Four Rivers


The Four Rivers Patriots Chapter, Georgia Society Sons of the American Revolution, held its monthly meeting Thursday night, February 15, at Chatters Restaurant in Lyons at 7 p.m. Eighteen members attended the meeting presided over by President Steve DeWeil. After the opening prayer was delivered by Chaplain Emory Fennell, the group stood to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and the Pledge to the SAR. President Steve then called on Compatriot Dess Smith III for a special presentation. Dess presented the Sgt-at-Arms Dan Brown with two Chapter Flag Streamers, one for the Elijah Clarke Heroes of the Hornets' Nest event and one for the 245th Anniversary of the Battle at Kettle Creek. Compatriot Dess then introduced Compatriot's Bernard Martin and Steve Burke to present their program on "Artillery through the Ages and Black Powder Production”.
