On Oct. 11, 32 members of the General Jethro Summer Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution began the day with a prayer breakfast to commemorate the establishment of the National Society.  

Chapter Chaplain Virginia Melton gave an inspirational message to the group.  Following the prayer breakfast, approximately 40 members participated in six different community service projects:  cleaning old gravesites in Gallatin City Cemetery, making plarn for sleeping mats for homeless, creating remembrance ribbons, cleaning glass negatives at the Sumner County Archives, cleaning the community room at the Sumner County Veterans Home and stuffing and addressing envelopes at the Children Are People headquarters.  

Nearly 100 hours of community service was completed by the group.  The General Jethro Sumner Chapter members joined with DAR members across the nation in providing “Service to America” by participating in historical preservation projects, patriotic projects, and community service projects.

Regent Nancy Gilley is with the Gen. Jethro Sumner Chapter DAR.
