DAR presents 50-year pin
Members of the Samuel Bacot Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution held their monthly meeting on Sept. 14 at the Florence Country Club.
During the meeting, local attorney Erin O’Neal Gaddy provided a program on the Constitution of the United States. Following Gaddy’s program, Chapter Regent Margaret Cox awarded Anne Jenkins a 50-year pin for her dedicated service.
Chapter members also received an update on the Continental Congress and the annual essay contests.
The next planned meeting Oct. 12 at 11:30 a.m. Guest speaker Dianne Welsh will provide a program on community service.
The Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities. Any woman 18 years or older-regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background-who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.
