Sterling Chapel Update
In April of 2021, the Veterans National Memorial Shrine and Museum received a donation in the amount of $150,000 from the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Linda Stafford, regent of the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, NSDAR along with chapter officers, presented the check that day.
The donation has been used to construct a new chapel at 2122 O’Day Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The Chapel will be known as the Sterling Chapel thanks to a generous bequest from DAR member Jeanette Thompson Sterling.
As completion continues on the chapel, the Legacy Brick program has placed all of the front bricks at the chapel entrance.
