Constitution event was a success

  • Follow Letters

As regent of the Augusta Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, I wish to express our gratitude to The Augusta Chronicle for publishing the picture of the celebration for the 220th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on Sept. 15.

The Augusta Chapter sponsored the event, as we have since Georgia signer of the Constitution William Few was reinterred in St. Paul's cemetery on Oct. 13, 1973, by an act of the legislature.

We are indeed grateful for those who participated in the wreath laying ceremony: the Few family; Elizabeth Tudor, Augusta Chapter NSDAR; Frances Nevins, regent, College Hill Chapter, NSDAR; Lt. Col. David R. Titus, chaplain, William Few Chapter, Georgia Society of Sons of the American Revolution; Wadene Welch, president, Augusta Woman's Club; and Kathleen Hibbard, president, Suburban Woman's Club.

We want to thank everyone else who attended the ceremonies, and hope to see all attendees next year.

Frances Sideman, Augusta
