Martha Koletar, Public Relations Chair for the Brunswick Town Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution and her two assistants: Lorraine Lenkovich and Phyllis Wilson were happy to announce that their chapter won 2nd place in print coverage in the South East Division contest for 2016 for Daughters of the American Revolution. Martha presented the award at the October DAR meeting, which was held at the Trinity Methodist Church on Oct. 12, 2016. The Brunswick Town Chapter won first place in the state of NC over 103 other chapters to be considered for an award Luann Nelson, The NC State Public Relations and Media Chair sent their information to be judged to Janet Deaton, the South East Division Chair. Janet was to judge 8 states that are in the South East Division to select the winners. It is quite an honor to be selected for this award. Our chapter has won other awards in the past, but never for our print coverage.
Ron and Norma Eckart are shown here with Russell Barlowe, the husband of the late Harriet Barlowe, who was a member of our chapter and very active in the progress to stabilize the historical structure of the WWI Rifle Range on Caswell Beach that they discovered in 2011. Harriett and Russ have been very much involved in this project over the years. Harriett no doubt smiles down on the tremendous progress they have made to date on a project she so loved.

Ron's presentation took us from the first discovery through the progress to stabilize the historical structure, which just this year made Wilmington Foundation's list of "Most Threatened Historic Places."
