DAR welcome new members, officers

The Hoosier Elm Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met June 3 at Old Capitol United Methodist Church in Corydon. During the meeting, new members and officers were welcomed to the chapter.

The new members are Tara Avis, Kimberly Brown, Linda Brown, Carol Proctor, Kimberly Simpson and Dana Taylor.

New chapter officers are Trudy Richardson, regent; Rhonda McAfee, vice regent; Becca Saunders, chaplain; Jessica Stroud, recording secretary; and Ellie Rushing, corresponding secretary.

The returning chapter officers are Chris Fisher, treasurer, and Lynne Keasling, registrar. The historian is now Marianne Meisel, the chapter’s previous regent.

The DAR is a lineage society that promotes patriotism, education and historic preservation that any woman over the age of 18, who can show they are descended from someone who served during the time of the American Revolution, may become a member.

For more information, Keasling is available to help in the research and to answer any questions. She can be reached by email at [email protected] or by calling 812-738-6921.
