Betsy Roberts Revolutionary War Snippets

Betsy Roberts wishes to share some interesting little snippets about the Revolutionary War. She posts information daily on her Facebook page and invites all those interested to view her page by typing in her name, Betsy Brodie Roberts, in the search box.

Betsy says she did something similar on Flickr a couple years ago. This information was in the Burlington, NC Times-News and she has now scanned the information into her computer and is posting something new each day on Facebook. You can view the old photos by clicking on the link below or see the daily postings on her Facebook for the next year or so.

Baby Shower Held for Wounded Warrior Battalion East Hope and Care Center

Below is a thank you note from Lisa English, Vice Regent, Battle of Rockfish Project Patriot Chairman

“Our Daughters of District VII helped sponsor a baby shower for all the pregnant wives and spouses of the Wounded Warrior Battalion East Hope and Care Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune on August 25, 2015.  It was an awesome day and all you daughters made a huge impact on the lives of some of our 'American Heroes' and the tiny ones who will likely follow in the steps of their parents who have served and protected our freedoms we enjoy today.

THANK YOU LADIES, I am so proud of all the Daughters of District VII who came together and made a huge impression and generosity to these Marines and their families.  Please forward this to all of your friends so everyone gets to see the wonderful outpouring of love and support for our military!

The Family Readiness Officer estimated the value of your donations in excess of $4,000 dollars!  It's amazing what we can do when we all work together. Again, thank you for making this project an overwhelming success!”
