DAR hosting picnic for county’s bicentennial June 25
The Washburn chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution invites the public to celebrate Putnam County’s bicentennial with a picnic at Robe-Ann Park on Saturday, June 25.
The event will be held in the front yard of the DAR log cabin between 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
The chapter will provide cake and children’s activities centering around practical skills of the pioneers. Meanwhile, the log cabin, which was moved to the park by the DAR in 1938, will be open for tours
Attendees will also be able to sign a document memorializing the event. Artisans and craftspeople are also welcome to come and demonstrate their skills.
The DAR will lead the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem during Celebrate 4 festivities on July 4. The log cabin will be open for a tour after the race.
The chapter is also leading the Putnam County Records Preservation Project preparing documents for scanning and archiving. This is a collaboration with county officials and FamilySearch.org and will need volunteers. More information is forthcoming.
