PATRIOTS' HALL ASSOCIATION
Dedicated To Our Veterans In Honor Of Their Service To Our Country: Lest We Forget!
Museum News: The completed projects listed below have been partially funded by a grant awarded to
Patriots' Hall by the South Carolina National Heritage Cerridor.
- Slat-wall: All of the display room walls, upstairs and downstairs, are fmished.
- Mural: Jim Juras has completed six of the mural panels and his artwork is amazing. PHA is
very lucky and proud to have access to Jim's talent. The six panels are Revolutionary War, Civil
War, Spanish American War, WWI, WWII and Korea. Yet to be done are Viet Nam, Desert
Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan,
- Quilt: The "Support Our Troops" quilt board is mounted on the Short Street side of the museum
and Patriots' Hall is now listed as a stop on the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail. The original quilt is
displayed in the museum library
- Stained Glass Window: Artist Sandy Wilson has designed this project for the museum. The glass '
chosen is brilliant blue, white and red. The completed panels will be mounted on the parking lot
side of the building over the entrance.
Challenge: The PHA Board of Directors is involved with saving the old county court house from
demolition. Please support our efforts as space has been promised for museum expansion. Who knows,
we might get that APC M113 (a tracked vehicle) yet!

March 31 st. PHA is proud to hold this event to honor all veterans. All proceeds benefit the
museum. Bikes and cars may be entered. Entrance fee is $25 with a $10 fee for an extra rider.

28 th. If you care to donate items, please drop them off at the museum no earlier than the week
before the sale.
Walk of Honor: Please stop by and see how this area has grown. The purchase of an engraved brick to
honor a single veteran, a group, a family member or friend is a good way to honor them and help
PHA at the same time.

postcards, etc. a recently added item is sterling silver rings engraved with "Support Our Troops".
