Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday


This is a more unusual plaque, but I thought it would be good to post today since the very well-known West Side Nut Club Fall Festival begins today about Noon.

It is actually the plaque that is on a throphy from the 2003 fall festival parade. This one is the Patriot Award won by the Ohio Valley Chapter of the Indiana Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Our local SAR Chapter enters a Revolutionary War Color Guard with Colonial flags and uniforms.
Years ago about 1978, TSGS, under Don Counts leadership, entered an antique car with magnetic signs with the society's name on it. Don encouraged me as the next TSGS President to do the same. The second year we had a newer antique car with room for Becky & the 3 boys. As we went by the reviewing stand the announcer pronounced "Genealogical Society" as the "Gynecological Society" -- but, the gentleman helping him with the cue cards said: "No, they are in my son's Jr. Rockhound Club... that is the Geological Society!" We still laugh about that.

The West Side Nut Club Fall Festival Parade will be this coming Saturday night 10 Oct 2009, come out and look for the Ohio Valley SAR Color Guard.
