The Brunswick Town Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution held their Wednesday, December 12, 2012 meeting at the Trinity United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall on 209 East Nash Street, Southport, NC at 10:00. Larry Hauerland, Former Houseparent at the Crossnore School  in Crossnore, NC was the guest speaker. He started working there in 1976.  At that time he and his wife had a three year old son. Two years later their daughter was born  so there were twelve children in his family. They lived in a cottage together. They shared a room with another child and assisted with many chores during the day. A special time was set for school work and recreation. It was a very loving and caring environment for the children. Crossnore is one of the six DAR approved school. Look over the links below to find out more abou the schools.
