Members of the South Branch Valley Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution have enjoyed a year of celebrating freedom, commemorating history, remembering servicemen, saluting veterans, and honoring a local woman of history.
Newly elected Chapter Regent JoeAnn Eye opened the 2016-2017 meeting year in September to conduct the usual business followed by an informative program prepared by Annabelle Vance on the 225th Anniversary of the Bill of Rights.
In October, Rachel Davis of EWVCTC gave a presentation on working with the college to assist non-traditional students. November’s meeting featured the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor prepared by Carmen Silliman and featured some photos from the collection of newest member Betty Runion.
After breaking for the winter months, members met in March 2017 at Valley View Golf Club and honored the late Betty Head Baker as a “WV Outstanding Women in History” nominee to the West Virginia DAR State Society.
