As you know, preserving American symbols is a pillar of our organization's mission, and Fort Mifflin stands as a powerful symbol of unrelenting perseverance. This historic fort has witnessed the remarkable courage of our patriotic ancestors who defended it against all odds.
Mother Nature hasn't been kind to this cherished landmark, and it is now in need of urgent repair. As a community, it is our responsibility to rally together and raise the necessary funds to restore Fort Mifflin to its former glory.
To support this cause, I urge each and every one of you to visit the homepage of our website, pccsar.org. There, you will find information on how to contribute towards the repairs. Our goal is to raise $1,000, and every donation, no matter how large or small, will make a significant impact.
Verbiage for the flagpole project plaque
Williamson College of the Trades
Flag P0le Project
Williamson College of the Trades is currently pursuing a new project on its historic campus. The project, to be located alongside the college’s new $21 million Wesley Student Center, is envisioned to incorporate three flagpoles, one at approximately 32 feet for the American Flag, and two at approximately 30 feet for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Williamson flag. Alongside the three flagpoles, there will be a raised pedestal to support a plague dedicating the adjacent turf athletic field to Joseph L. and Marion M. Wesley who donated the funds for the new student center. Both the flagpoles and the pedestal will be located on a raised foundation with appropriate lighting and surrounding landscaping.
The project is being sponsored by the Williamson Class of 2024 in partnership with the Sons of the American Revolution. Students from the Class will begin designing the project this coming fall. Once the construction design has been completed and approved by the College, Williamson students will purchase the required materials and construct the project. A plaque has been prepared which will be prominently displayed recognizing the contributions and partnership of the Williamson Class of 2024 and the Sons of the American Revolution.
Flag Holders for
Betsy Ross Flags
Compatriots are invited to assist in purchasing flag holders for Philadelphia cemeteries. The approximate cost of each flag holder is $16.
Philadelphia County is the only county in the PCC area that does not provide Rev War specific medallion flag holders for Patriot graves. Placing the flag stick directly in the ground increases the probability the flag will rest on the ground.
