Shanholtz Wed On September 28th Hall Home on Feb. 10th Mr. and Mrs. Keenan L. Shanholtz St. Bartholomew Episcopal Church in Leetown was the setting for the afternoon wed- ding of Miss Emily Crouse, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence E. Crouse, of Kearneysville, to Keenan L. Shanholtz, the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Garry Shanholtz, of Romney. The ceremony was per- formed at half after three o'clock on Saturday, September 28, by the Rev. Keith Butler. In addition to celebrating the marriage of the couple, the day served as a remembrance of the bride's grandfather on his birthday. Preceding the ceremony, Ms. Barbara Bratina and Mr. Bill Caldwell sang "The Wedding Song" as well as "One Hand, One Heart." The traditional wedding marches were used as the bride and groom entered and exited the church. Given in marriage by her fa- ther, the bride wore a strapless white gown with silk embroi- dered bodice, accented with sil- ver beadwork at the top. A full tulle skirt ended gracefully with a circular train. Her veil was fingertip length and was edged in satin ribbon. Her headpiece was a silver filigree tiara sprinkled with rhine- stones. The bride carried a cascade bouquet of pale peach sonia roses, peach asiatic lillies, stephanotis, bear grass, ivy and hypericum berries. Mrs. Jeffrey Mason, matron of honor, wore a floor-length gown of salmon satin with chif- fon overlay, ending in a fishtail hem. Other attendants, dressed identically, were Miss Laura Crouse, sister of the bride, Miss Jacque Heavner, Miss Sarah Lucas and Mrs. Vic Mathias. All attendants car- ried fall bouquets consisting of yellow confetti roses, solidago, eucalyptus, and hypericum berries. Little Miss Hannah Sensel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Sensel, of Martinsburg, pre- ceded the bride's entrance. She was dressed in a simple full- length gown with silk bodice and skirt. A crown of tiny white sweetheart roses encircled her head and she carried a white- washed basket of confetti rose petals. Mr. Tim Nichols was best man for Mr. Shanholtz. Ushers, all friends of the groom, were Mr. Vic Mathias, Mr. Patrick Flanagan, Mr. Todd Mullody, and Mr. Abraham Crouse, brother of the bride. Selected Bible passages ..... were read by friends and fam- ily of the couple, including Mr. Paul Miller, III, Mrs. Kent Shanholtz, Mr. Jeffrey Smoot, and Pastor Quentin Simpson. A reception was held at the home of the bride immediately following the ceremony. The groom's family enter- tained the wedding party fol- lowing rehearsal at a dinner at the Clarion Inn and Conference Center in Shepherdstown. Pre-nuptial events to honor the bride included a luncheon shower given by Mrs. Garry Shanholtz, a seasonal shower by Mrs. Jeff Mason, a personal shower by Mrs. Marshall Glenn and Miss Elizabeth Landon and a miscellaneous shower by Mrs. David Pentony and Mrs. Jeff Smoot. Upon returning from a week's honeymoon in Daytona Beach, Fla., the couple is resid- ing in their new home in Hampshire County. Bee Line Chapter WVDAR met in the home of Mrs. Harold Hall on Monday, February 10. The Ritual was used in the opening by the Regent, Mrs. Charles Printz. The President General's message praised all races and nationalities for their contributions and talents which have helped to establish America's freedom and spirit of independence. Excerpts from the National Defender on Lincoln's Act of Obedience. A year before the Mayflower arrived off of Cape Cod carrying the continent's first few families, 20 Africans arrived in the hold of a Dutch fighting ship at Jamestown Landing in August 1619. It was the beginning of a sad ordeal that didn't change for 244 years. Lincoln's obedience to God saved the Union. More than 200,000 blacks, many of them freed men, joined the Army and turned the tide of the war. Thanks to the dedicated Christians who will gather at church on January 1, Emanicapation Day won't be forgotten. Freedom never has been. May 4 is WVDAR Day at Valley Forge.

The chapter agreed to fi- nance the restoration of year- books by Mrs. Nelson Jackson. From the C.A.R. Magazine- The cornerstone was laid July 4, 1848. It weighed 24,500 pounds, and it disappeared. No, I'm not kidding. Twenty thou- sand people witnessed the dedication of that tower and the installation of the block of marble. But somehow that 12 ton cornerstone, got covered up and lost during construction and to this day no one knows where it is. During the next seven years the structure Work was then suspended for 25 years. In 1880, the Army Corps of Engineers .was given the job of completing the hollow marble shaft. But the scaffold- ing and the ropes that ran to the top had rotted. Now re- member, these were the days before high-lift cranes and heli- copters, so getting the new rope up that high presented a prob- lem. Anyway it did until the army engineers drafted a pi- geon. Inside the shaft, a thin wire was attached to the leg of the bird, and the noise of a gun- shot sent it soaring, frightened, through the open top. Once out- side, the bird landed. The wire that was attached to his leg was then used to haul up a big- ger rope and finally a thick cable on which heavy scaffold- ing could be mounted. Com- pleted in 1884, the Washington Monument stands today at its full height of 555 feet, thanks to a pigeon. --The Wonder of America- 2002 by Derric Jotmson The program consisted of a portion of the video on the ex- ploration of Lewis and Clark-a continuing program because of its length, but most interesting.
