Local DAR member places second in national contest

 

  Ms. Jerry Poole Gibson, a resident of Stockbridge and a charter chapter member of the Andrew McBride chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution placed second in the National American Heritage awards for her purse made with recycled chip bags and candy wrappers.  The contest is opened to all DAR members in the United States and chapters in foreign countries.  Ms. Gibson had to include a picture of her work and write a paragraph explaining the technique used and how her work supported this year’s theme, “Invest in the Future:  Creating Tomorrow’s Family Heirlooms.”

  This was the first year of the local chapter and the members have received recognition from the Georgia Division for their outstanding work in education, conservation and patriotic activities for the past year.  The chapter was recognized with 21 certificate awards, which included sponsoring Good Citizens Awards in Henry County high schools, outstanding school report, outstanding veterans’ activities, conservation report, commemorative events and numerous awards to individual members for their work for DAR.  The chapter also received the award for the highest Chapter Achievement in the state. 

  Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death.
