What We’ve Been Up To – Summer 2016

Since the last issue of The Patriot the Society has been busy; we’ve hosted nine Board meetings since 2016 and 2016 has welcomed twenty-six new Society members. The annual Fraunces Tavern Museum fundraiser, the George Washington Birthday Ball was a great success. The Color Guard presented the colors at many unique and special events, including the annual May honoring of the Jewish Revolutionary War soldiers at Shearith Isreal synagogue in Manhattan.
