Princeton-Illinois Chapter NSDAR

CHAPTER ACTIVITIES GALLERY

During the last year, the Princeton-Illinois Chapter has included Uncle Sam, in many of our events. Much like Flat Stanley (1964 children's book written by Jeff Brown), Uncle Sam has traveled to many places.
We hope you enjoy his adventures as much as we did.
