Society Saturday - Honoring Thomas Jefferson

Every year, on Thomas Jefferson's birthday, there is a wreath laying at the Jefferson Memorial.  This is organized by the DC Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution and several lineage and other organizations are invited to participate.

This year, on the 273rd Anniversary of his birth, we attended on a beautiful day.  The ceremony started with the U.S. Army Brass Quintet and the Joint Armed Forces Color Guard.  After being welcomed by the National Park Service, all of the lineage societies began to present their wreaths.

Following the wreath presentations, taps was played and the ceremony was over.

I was proud to represent the National Society Children of the American Colonists and present our wreath.
