Beaufort’s Gov. Paul Hamilton Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) honored Lady’s Island Country Club and The Tavern at Royal Pines with the SAR Flag Certificate. Owner Jeff Fisher and Tavern Manager Patty Huckabee were presented the award following a recent meeting of the chapter. Businesses and individuals can be recognized for flying the American Flag for patriotic reasons and meeting American Flag protocol including keeping the flag lit during night time when flown 24 hours a day such as it is at the Club. Additionally during the meeting two members were sworn into the chapter. Tom Hewitt, son of Capt. Dean Hewitt (USN ret.) of Dataw Island, pinned the SAR rosette on his son’s lapel after Dr. John Kenney of Lady’s Island was sworn in by Chapter President Michael Keyserling. Hewitt’s Patriot ancestor is Daniel Womelsdorf of Pennsylvania and Kenney’s Patriot Ancestor is Jonathan Lodge, also of Pennsylvania. Photos by Jody Henson and Don Starkey.
