Sequoyah DAR Chapter donates wreath to honor Memorial Day
To honor all those who died in our nation’s service, the Sequoyah chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution donated a patriotic standing wreath that was prominently displayed at the Memorial Day service held at the Big Canoe Chapel on Monday, May 27. Several of the Sequoyah Chapter members were present for the very moving dedication. After the service, the wreath was moved to The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti and placed at the head of the Fallen Soldiers Table.
