The Col. William Grayson Chapter of the Virginia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was active in the community during August. They recognized and supported local Eagle Scouts, a frocking ceremony, and presented flag certificates.

Eagle Scout Recognition

In August, Compatriot Leamon Duncan of the Col. William Grayson chapter of the Virginia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution presented Certificates of Recognition and accompanying patches to Jeffrey and Robert Lazar. Jeffrey and Robert earned the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 1882, Haymarket. Leamon dressed in militia uniform for the occasion. The scouts also received applications for the Arthur M. & Brenda King Eagle Scout Award.

Frocking Ceremony

On Aug. 24, members of the Colonel William Grayson Chapter, VASSAR, Culpeper Minutemen Chapter, VASSAR, and VASSAR President Pat Kelly provided support to the frocking ceremony of Chaplain (Colonel) Kevin L. Guthrie. The historic Pohick Episcopal Church in Lorton hosted the event.

Compatriots and other participants were dressed in period uniforms. Appropriate period dress for the ladies added a colonial “feel” to the occasion. Compatriots served as greeters and handed out event programs. They also served as colonial guards for the attendees and as special guards to the presiding Army General Officer during the ceremony. In addition to the general support to the program, Colonel William Grayson Chapter Compatriot and author Paul Chase presented Chaplain Guthrie with a copy of his book “The American Revolution: A Compendium of Terms and Topics.”

Flag Certificate

On Aug. 17, the Colonel William Grayson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution presented a certificate to both the Novant Health UVA Health System’s Prince William Medical Center and the Haymarket Medical Center. The presentation was made through Justin Jordan and John Williams, representatives of both facilities.
