For the third consecutive year the Fort Henry Chapter and the Wheeling Chapter DAR jointly hosted a memorial service and wreath laying ceremony on Memorial Day at the flag pole in Wheeling Park. Joining in supporting the event were members of the George Washington Chapter (PASSAR), the Ebenezer Zane Chapter (OHSSAR) and the Point Pleasant Chapter (WVSSAR). The event was suggested by Fort Henry Chapter member John Hargleroad who was manager of Wheeling Park in 2015 when the first ceremony was held.
