Christmas Wreath Rubber Stamps Sent Overseas
Isaac Hunter’s Tavern Society collects items for adopted soldier in Iraq
Members of Isaac Hunter’s Tavern Society, Children of the American Revolution are collecting items for a Christmas Package to send to their adopted Soldier in Iraq.
They have already sent two packages this year.
Recently the adopted soldier wrote an email saying, “Tell the children I did receive the packages and I can’t express how much they mean to me. I have enjoyed them and especially the personal notes from the children. As far as I am concerned, it is them, my daughter, and the rest of the next generation that I am fighting for. Everything I enjoyed when I was at home was bought and paid for by the patriots of the past. If I can play a small part in offering this to future generations, it would be an honor to those I serve with. I hope you don’t mind, but I shared some of the snacks with my guys. The little things from home that we sometimes take for granted mean the world to us over here. Thanks again for your Patriotism, support and prayers.”
Last month we learned about American Indian totems and signs.
The November meeting topic was Ben Franklin, Printer and The History of Printing. A display board showing pictures of cuneiform writing, Viking Runes, Scrolls such as the Torah, Illuminated Manuscripts, Moveable type and the Gutenberg Bible explained printing to the members. A picture of Benjamin Franklin, his printing press and other materials found in a print shop were shown.
He was apprenticed as a Printer’s Boy to his brother, James, when he was 12 years old.
When he was 17 in 1732, he printed a book called “Poor Richard’s Almanac” and it was so popular he printed it for 25 years.
With all of his inventions and accomplishments he always preferred to be called “a printer.”
Since rubber-stamping is a form of printing the members used rubber stamps to make Christmas cards for the Veteran’s in the VA hospital in Durham. Rubber stamps of Christmas wreaths, snowmen, mail boxes, candy canes, mistletoe, toys and Christmas ornaments were used with red and green stamp pads.
Isaac Hunter’s Tavern Society CAR is 20 years old this year and has been meeting at the Powhatan Baptist Church for 10 years. In appreciation to the church for providing a meeting place Tom Belvin, Senior Society President and Rita Jones, Church member, planted a Pink Dogwood Tree on the church grounds. At the meeting the members brought watering cans and “watered the tree,” because trees, like people, need a drink of water. This is in line with their Conservation projects.
