Snapshot: Daughters of the American Revolution honor WWI anniversary 


Horseshoe Prairie Chapter officers Becky Nazarenus, treasurer; Sharon McMahon, vice regent and historian; Jan Winkler, corresponding secretary; Lyn Scheier, registrar; Mary Ann Lockhart, recording secretary; and Amanda Mizell, regent. Last month, the Horseshoe Prairie Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, presented a ceremony in recognition of those who lost their lives while serving in World War I, also known as “The Great War.” Chapters of DAR across the nation are recognizing the war’s 100th anniversary. Thirty-one soldiers from Hamilton County died in World War I, and those names are inscribed on the Memorial Wall plaque on the grounds of the Historic Hamilton County Courthouse in downtown Noblesville. The memorial ceremony included the playing of bagpipes, reading of the poem “In Flanders Fields,” written in 1915, a solo of “Proud to be an American” by Bruce McMahon, a 21-gun salute provided by the Navy Club USA Hamilton County Ship 29, and concluded with the playing of “Taps” and laying of the 100th Anniversary Memorial Wreath.
