Schoharie Chapter NSDAR plans free Lecture and BBQ Fundraiser

Written By Editor on 6/12/21 | 6/12/21

On June 13, at 1PM, there will be a Lecture on the Lawn presented by Turning Point 1777.  Local historians Jeff and Pam O'Connor from Turning point 1777 will present their flag program on the lawn of Schoharie’s Lasell Hall. The first part of the presentation will run through the evolution of the American flag – all the parts that first made up the British colors, then how the American flag developed from that, as well as a narrative about the real Betsy Ross . The second part will describe the history and myths associated with fairly well known Revolutionary War flags, plus a few non-Rev War that are relevant. Featured is a Liberty flag reproduction based on the one that flew in Schenectady and the remnants of which are in the Schenectady Historical Society Museum. Please bring a lawn chair. Covid regulations will be enforced.

At 2PM the same day, Schoharie Chapter NSDAR will also host a BBQ fundraiser until all are sold. Chicken and Ribs provided by BBQ Delights, and the sides provided by Beef and Brew. Halves and ribs are $9.00, dinners are $13.00. There are no preorders and no seating will be available onsite.
