America 250 Patriot Marker Dedication

On a beautiful late 2023 October day, Manatee Chapter dedicated our America 250 – Revolutionary War Patriots Monument at the Veterans Park located along the Manatee River in downtown Bradenton, Florida. In her greetings from State Regent Cindy Addison, Laura Marriott stated “The National Society established the America 250 Special Committee to plan DAR’s involvement, and maximize its visibility, during our nation’s upcoming 250th anniversary, DAR is inspiring State Societies, Regents Councils and Chapters to engage the community, the reason we are all here today. Manatee Chapter has fulfilled this major DAR objective by dedicating this America 250 marker. The marker will be a source of pride for our local community to celebrate the brave patriots who founded our nation as a reminder and the importance of emulating their conviction, courage, and cooperation for national unity. Congratulations, Manatee Chapter.” To view a pictorial presentation of the complete dedication view the following link.
