Coverage of February 12th DAR Meeting

 Pat Elsaesser American Indians Chair introduced  guest speakerTom Hunter. 
The Brunswick Town Chapter held their February 12, 2014 meeting at St. James Plantation at the Reserve Golf Club. Guest speaker, Tom Hunter, was excellent. His topic on the North Dakota Oglala Indian Reservation was informative and heart breaking, especially in his description of the conditions Indians have been experiencing on the reservation.

Chaplain Diane Kuebert swore in new DAR members Faye Cashwell, Connie Hendrix, Mary Cundiff, and Martha Koletar.

This year North Carolina State DAR Conference is "From the Mountains to the Sea; Celebrating Our Rich North Carolina History." The afghan with the lighthouse, sand, driftwood and boats will fit well into the theme and will be donated to the "Tea Cup  Silent Auction" at the NC State Conference. The proceeds will go towards the Pages expenses. The afghan took Carol 4 months to cross stitch.

DAR member, Fran Carlsen, was Brunswick Town DAR Chapter's liaison to Wreaths Across America 2013. The 2013 Fundraising Group Certificate of Appreciation was presented to Brunswick Town Chapter 3 105NC DAR in recognition of outstanding efforts in helping to further the mission:
Remember...the fallen.
Honor... those who serve.
Teach... our children the value of freedom.
