At the October meeting, Linda Pryce, chapter registrar will give a program on genealogy and DAR applications. The meeting will take place on Oct. 11 at 6 PM in the fellowship hall of the Rockingham First United Methodist Church at 410 E. Washington St. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution is invited to attend this program.
In September, the chapter promoted Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23. The Constitution was signed in Philadelphia in September of 1787.
The chapter also promoted DAR and saluted women with a fair booth at the county fair. The theme of the fair booth was “Remembering the Ladies-Hearth and Home” and the chapter won a blue ribbon.
Also on Sept. 11, Florence Walker, a retired registered nurse and DAR member, represented the DAR chapter at the Patriot’s Day parade. She was recognized for volunteering during World War II for the American Red Cross supporting our American soldiers as were many nurses on the home front.
To be a DAR member, persons must trace their ancestor back to the American Revolutionary War. The ancestor must have contributed to the war effort or served as a patriot in the war. More information on becoming a member will be given at the Oct. 11 meeting. For more information, call Mary Bowles at 652-5770.
