At the March meeting of the Thomas Heyward, Jr., Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution family members and teachers proudly joined their student winners. Every year a subject is presented and area students in grades five through eight compete — all writing on the same topic — this year’s topic being “The Lives of Children During the American Revolution.”

At a recent meeting of the Thomas Heyward, Jr. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Registrar Weedy Servaes (center) was pleased to present Candy Matera (left) and Patti O’Leary (right) to the membership. The ladies were officially inducted into the National Society.  In order to qualify for membership prospects must prove that they are direct descendants of Patriots of the Revolutionary War.  Patriots either participated in the military or provided support to the cause that freed the American Colonies from the rule of the British.
