EUREKA – Mary Ann Middleton will explain the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), its purposes, benefits and activities, to the Woodford County Historical Society at 7:00 PM on Thursday, November 14 in the Parish Hall of Eureka Christian Church, 302 S. Main Street. The church has a new elevator to provide handicapped accessibility. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Mrs. Middleton holds a national office in the DAR, something no Peorian has held since 1931. A retired teacher, she concentrates on teaching the history of the American Flag, portraying Betsy Ross and has advised a series of DAR presidents on flag protocols and manners. She has held nearly every elective position in the organization and delights in presenting the organization’s goals and ideals to the public.
The Woodford County Historical Society is vitally interested in preserving the past for future generations. It maintains a genealogical collection and mini-museum at its headquarters, 112 N. Main in Eureka, and is open for visits from 1:00 – 4:00 PM on Wednesday and Fridays. For more information, call Karen Fyke at 309-467-4525 or cell 309-360-6772 or Barbara Bradle at 309-467-3106.
