The Colonial Dames 17th Century Indian Trails Chapter enjoyed their July meeting on the grounds of Middle Run Primitive Baptist Church on July 13.

The members enjoyed a delightful program presented by the Ohio Society State President, Janice O’Neil. The presentation included information regarding the projects for the next two years, which include education of the 17th century to children in grades 3-5, Scholarship for Folds of Honor, and donation of a hand-carved Elizabethan era chair for the National Headquarters.

The meeting was followed by a historic marking of the Middle Run Primitive Baptist Church. The church was established in 1799 in Greene County and is the oldest church in the county.

Special guests included attendees from the Middle Run Primitive Baptist Church Preservation Association: Tim Lee, President and Acting Treasurer, Judy Dils, Vice President, and Greg Wulker, Historian.

A picnic on the front lawn was enjoyed after the dedication service just as the original church members did during their time.
