Focus on Education-Celebrate America!

On behalf of the Daughters of the American Revolution, DAR President General Lynne Forney Young’s message, to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism has been achieved.  Brunswick Town Daughters of the American Revolutions (DAR)  members Diane Price, Dawn Schulte, Jackie Craft and Norma Eckard reviewed and approved a series of 4 historical biographies to be gifted to the 10 elementary schools in Brunswick County, which were purchased along with Sons of the American Revolution member, (SAR)  Ron Eckard who offered a 5th book, a Daniel Boone biography and gave credit to his National Society Sons of the American Revolution, (NSSAR) George Rogers Clark Chapter of Clarksburg, WV.

The book titles are: Ben Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson. The books lend themselves to educating students about our countries' heritage.  The books are high interest, low vocabulary, with large print and offering a bibliography. The schools are: Union Elementary, Shallotte, Waccamaw Ash Elementary in Bolivia; Lincoln in Leland; Southport Elementary; Belville in Leland; Town Creek in Winnabow; Jessie Mae Monroe in Ash; Virginia Williamson, Bolivia; and Supply Elementary.

By providing this gift of historical books to school children we are Celebrating America.
