PCHS BANQUET 2016 HONORING BARBARA J. BUCHANAN June 8 • 6:30 p.m. Settler’s Inn • Hawley, PA

The PCHS will hold its annual banquet on Wednesday June 8th, 2016 at The Settlers Inn in Hawley, PA. We will take the opportunity to recognize the outstanding efforts put forth by Barbara Buchanan to have the Lincoln Flag recognized as an official blood relic of the Lincoln assassination, as well as all her hard work and generosity towards the Columns Museum through the years. It was 20 years ago this June that the scholarly research on the flag by then President of the Lincoln Group, Joseph Garrera, was published, thus recognizing the blood-stained flag as one of the most important flags in American history. Her work in making the flag the recognized artifact that it is today is devoutly continued, in recent years, by Museum Director Lori Strelecki. Last spring the flag travelled back to its place of origin, Ford’s Theatre; there it was part of a historical exhibit, including several other Lincoln Blood Relics, to denote 150 years since the beloved President’s tragic death. A small thread from the Lincoln Flag was incorporated into the National 9-11 Flag a few years ago. Barbara Buchanan was among the select group that helped stitch the thread into its very special place on the National Flag; the blue thread from our Lincoln Flag is located on a white background within the field of blue, lower right side. The National 9-11 Flag is proudly displayed at the National 9-11 Museum in NYC where over 2 million people see it each year and read of the Lincoln Flag’s connection to Milford and the PCHS. That is some rather impressive recognition which we have Barbara to thank for, as she started the Lincoln Flag’s campaign for its place in history; and we are proud of her, and our prized possession.
We hope you will join us on the 8th to honor this very special lady. The event starts at 6:30 pm with cocktails in the Garden at The Settlers Inn. Dinner and program to follow. Tickets are $75. Reservations may be obtained by calling 570-2968126 or by emailing pikemuse@ptd.net
