CUMMING, Ga. – The Robert Forsyth chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) held its charter banquet on Oct. 5 at the Reid Barn in Cumming.

About 100 members, guests and dignitaries attended the banquet.

During the chartering ceremony, Allen Greenly was inducted as the first president of the new chapter. After his induction, Georgia Society President James E. Stallings presented Greenly with the SAR Meritorious Service Medal.

The chartering ceremony was followed by the induction ceremony of 23 new members into the National Society Sons of the American Revolution. The new members included two brothers and seven sets of fathers and sons.

The Robert Forsyth chapter began with 11 members in March. Now the chapter has 55 members.

The night ended with Greenly presenting several medals. Joyce Mortison and Melissa Danielsson received medals of appreciation for their work with the new members of the Robert Forsyth chapter.

Greenly then presented Cumming Mayor H. Ford Gravitt with the SAR Bronze Good Citizenship Medal for his 44 years of public service.
