C.A.R. Event Today

This morning our local C.A.R. society had a wreath laying ceremony at the grave of our namesake, Peggy Shaw, who was a 12 year old girl shot and killed at Hanna's Town in 1782 and is buried at Middle Presbyterian Church cemetery in Mount Pleasant.  Hanna's Town was the first seat of government in Westmoreland County, PA.

It was a beautiful ceremony and the weather was unbelievably perfect.  The year marked the 60th anniversary of the grave marker being placed there by our society.

After the ceremony we drove to Hanna's Town, had a nice picnic followed by our meeting and then toured the grounds and fort.
