report from Edward J.Douglas, Secretary, Norfolk Chapter
Mrs. Lin Olsen from the Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways History Foundation was the keynote speaker at the September Meeting of the Norfolk Chapter. We also unveiled our brand new Norfolk Chapter SAR Banner just in time for all of the upcoming events that
we have scheduled in the months ahead. It will definitely be put to good use. Thanks to President Weeks for seeing this project through from initial design to final completion. A big Huzzah goes out to him.
The Norfolk Chapter has many activities planned for the next few months. We will be manning a SAR booth at the 6th Annual Waterways Heritage Festival at Great Bridge on October 10 and 11. Also coming up is Yorktown Day and all of the week-end long celebrations and activities that will go along with that on October 17, 18 and 19.
The 240th Anniversary of the Battle of Kemp's Landing will occur on November 14 at Emmanuel Episcopal Church. Of course the year wouldn't be complete without the Commemoration of the Battle of Great Bridge on December 5.
