A trip back in time at Newcomers Club
Tuesday November 12th 2019 - 12:00pm to
The Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War will be the featured guests of the Newcomers Club luncheon meeting on Nov. 12 at the Quail Inn in Oakmont. The Auxiliary is named after Ivy Stiers, a Union nurse who served in the Civil War and was one of the few women who received a pension for her service – $12 a month – the same pension as a Private. Stiers is buried at the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery. Auxiliary President and Department Vice-President Rebekah Thomas and Auxiliary Vice-President and Department President Cindy Eddy will come in period costumes and speak about how the group strives to assist the Sons of Union Veterans in keeping alive the memories of past sacrifices.
