Thanks to all those who helped with this. Patt Graves, president of the Lunenburg Chapter, was the guest speaker with a most interesting program. Some of the ladies were dressed in their Widows Weed (black morning clothes) and others were dressed in their white. Some of the men were in uniform carrying flags others were on horse back as cavalry. There were several WWII awards given. The UDC ladies served General Robert E.
