The Indian Trails Chapter of the Colonial Dames XVII Century met recently at the Cape May Campus Center for a catered luncheon meeting. President Kay McIntire welcomed guests Hanna Hopper and Kay Stotts, along with returning member Karen Kratzer, potential members Barbara Scarboro and Shannon Peters, and members.
Indian Trails has been supporting the Georgetown Veterans Home for a few years now with donations of items that are needed by the residents. Hanna Hopper, Volunteer Coordinator from the Georgetown Veterans Home, gave a program on the home, which is a state home for honorably discharged Ohio veterans who have served on active duty during a war or conflict and are unable to earn a living due to disease, wounds or other impediment.
The Georgetown Home opened in the early 2000s and currently has 160 residents with 154 men and six women residents. The residents ranging from WWII, Korean War, Vietnam and Gulf War veterans with all branches of the service represented.
In other business, the chapter planned to mark the cemetery at New Antioch as the chapter honors its colonial ancestors for the holidays. New Antioch was chosen as it is the resting place of some members’ colonial ancestors.
After a delicious luncheon, an informative program and business meeting, President Kay McIntire adjourned the meeting.
