Col. Aquila Hall

History of the Col. Aquila Hall Chapter

The Colonel Aquila Hall Chapter was first organized and chartered on September 10, 1920, primarily through the efforts of the Honorable James H. Preston of Baltimore and the Honorable Walter Preston of Bel Air. It was the first Chapter in the State of Maryland, but soon fell inactive. Efforts by Armard V. Motsinger in 1968 to bring it back were unsuccessful.

Col. Aquila Hall Chapter Meeting

Please save September 17th for our summer Chapter Meeting.  Past President Lou Raborg and his wife, Becky, have graciously offered to host the event at their home.  Our current Chapter President is also extending the invitation to the two DAR Chapters and the Bush Declaration CAR Society so this has the potential for a good turnout.  If you haven’t been able to attend a meeting lately, this is the one you should try not to miss.

Col. Aquila Hall Chapter Featured in the Bel Air Fourth of July Parade

The Col. Aquila Hall Chapter helped man the DAR chapter float in the Bel Air Parade.  There was a light sprinkle until the heavens opened up just as we got under way. The spectators were more prepared than we were. We received much applause and the children loved the canon manned by 3rd VP Tim Mallory and Leda Behseresht as Molly Pitcher.  Barbara Adams was Betsy Ross.  Dave Hoover, Chris Smithson and Lou Raborg marched in front escorting the DAR banner carriers.  State president William Smithson stayed relatively dry, driving the truck.
