Roanoke Rapids Graded School District Elementary Schools were recently visited by Ken Wilson of the Halifax Resolves SAR Chapter who spoke to them about the SAR’s annual Americanism Poster Contest. Wilson explained the rules of the contest and this year’s subject, a Revolutionary War event. Two subjects were suggested, the Edenton Tea Party and the Halifax Resolves. After speaking briefly on those two topics, Wilson answered a myriad of questions about the contest and his attire depicting a member of the North Carolina militia. Four sessions were held at Manning Elementary School for the 4th & 5th grades and one session at Belmont Elementary School for the 5th grade.
