Great Attendance for the November DAR Meeting

Ms. Barbara Rowe, Curator of the Cape Fear Museum in Wilmington was our guest speaker at the November 13th DAR meeting for the Brunswick Town DAR Chapter that was held at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Southport, NC. Barbara gave a very interesting  presentation on the preservation of old photos, newspapers, and ephemera.  The Museum has a great deal of memorabilia and photos in their own collections, and Barbara is very knowledgeable about the work it takes to preserve them. Barbara is often able to help with identifying the era that a particular photo was taken by examining the clothing used.

There were 50 attendees including members and visitors to the November DAR meeting.
