DAR Donates $150,000 to Shrine

Fort Wayne, April 2021

The Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum has received
notification of a donation in the amount of $150,000 from the
Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American
Revolution. The donation will be used to construct a new Chapel at
2122 O’Day Road in Fort Wayne.

The Chapel will be known as the Sterling Chapel and is made possible by a
generous bequest from DAR member Jeanette Thompson Sterling.

Due to construction at the Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum, the check presentation was April 27, 2021  at Buckner Park Pavilion on Bass Rd.

Linda Stafford, current regent of the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, NSDAR
and chapter officers, will be presenting the check to the Veteran’s organization.

The Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum is currently closed for
construction of a new parking lot, as construction of the Vietnam Wall
is being completed.
