I had the pleasure of spending last evening with my brothers in the John Manire Chapter SAR in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. I served as the state President of the Kentucky Sons of the American Revolution in 2018-19, and still serve as the state’s Chaplain. So, on occasion, I am invited to other chapters for special events.
Last night was one such event. I swore in their new slate of 2019-20 officers, including my good buddy John G. West (pictured below) as chapter President.
I have to confess that I am jealous of John’s gavel! Surely, he will get lots of things accomplished by carrying such a “big stick.”
I was also blessed to finish off the evening with a presentation of “Betsy Johnson: Girl Patriot of Bryan Station, Kentucky.” I even sold a few books!
It was a great night, indeed.
