March 13th DAR Meeting

DAR members, Ann Cranford, Jo Betts Baxley, and Jackie Craft
The  DAR meeting was held on March 13, 2013 at the Trinity Methodist Church in Southport, NC at 10:00 a.m. There were three DAR members who participated in the program. Ann Cranford, gave a talk about placement of pins and insignias on the blue and white ribbon that members wear to meetings. She reviewed the cost of pins, what pins you can wear on the ribbon and what pins should not be worn on the ribbon. Jo Betts Baxley gave a talk on “Locating Female Ancestors” a women’s identity was usually under that of her husband’s identity (a femme covert or covered woman.) She also brought in reference books to share with the group.  Jackie Craft, registrar and acting regent, gave a talk on filling out your supplemental form and how to send checks and explaining the cost of a supplemental application. She reviewed the procedure for signing the application and make sure you have at least one member to member name on the front of the application. There is a $10 fee if you want a supplemental certificate for your ancestor.

Prices have increased since the time this photo was taken.

Anna C. Sutton, DAR Service for Veterans Chairman, has requested from all chapters across the state of North Carolina to collect greeting cards for veterans in facilities throughout NC. Brunswick Town Chapter collected a variety of beautiful cards to send to Anna Sutton so that she can have them distributed throughout the state. These cards will appear on trays given to the veterans at various meals to brighten their day. What a great idea.
