Local DAR mails Christmas-In-A-Box

The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) send thanks to all who donated and signed the Christmas cards at the Nov. 11 Veterans Day at the Riverwalk.

Because of the donations, the organization was able to fill three postal boxes with foods for a Christmas feast to three military personnel deployed overseas. Also included in the boxes were handmade knit hats, ditty bags, and hand knitted cotton washcloths plus a pack of playing cards.

The DAR is a women’s service organization dedicated to historic preservation, education and patriotism. Any woman older than 18 who can prove an ancestor served in the American Revolution is a prospective member. For more information on the DAR visit http://www.sarahriggshumphreysDAR.org
