SAR members stand vigil
Two members of the local George Washington Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, Ronald Miller of Moon Township, left, and Gary Timmons of Wheeling, W.Va., recently joined 27 other SAR color guardsmen from 11 states and stood vigil at the tomb of George and Martha Washington at their home at Mt. Vernon. The watch began at 9 a.m. and continued until 9 p.m., with the color guardsmen doing half-hour shifts. This is the third year the SAR has stood guard at the tomb.
