Dymerski honored for support for veterans

The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution awarded Mark Dymerski, franchise owner of the Howe Ave. Dunkin Donuts with a DAR Certificate of Recognition for his continuing generous support of our Veterans on Veterans Day.

When accepting the DAR Certificate, Mr. Dymerski said he is committed to providing Dunkin Donuts coffee and munchkins as an annual way of thanking our Armed Services Veterans past and present.  For the past seven years Dunkin’ Donuts has provided free coffee and munchkins to those who attend the Veterans Day Ceremony at the River Walk in Shelton.

Judy Savary, who initiated DAR and Donuts, said she was honored to present the DAR Certificate of Recognition to Mr. Dymerski.  “Mark’s willingness to participate all these years enabled our DAR chapter to honor and promote the role Veterans play in securing our freedoms as a community, state, and nation.”  Joining Mrs. Savary was Betsy Grant who spearheaded this year’s DAR & Donuts.  Mrs. Grant said that the Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter is involved in the community and does not totally focus on Revolutionary War Patriots.  Honoring our Veterans on Nov. 11, she added, is another way to promote awareness of the costs we all must make to preserve our freedoms.

The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman DAR Chapter serves Shelton and many nearby towns and works to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who won American independence.  Any woman over age 18 who can prove an ancestor served in the American Revolution is a prospective member; learn more at www.sarahriggshumphreysDAR.org
