Sequoyah DAR Chapter donates wreath to honor Memorial Day

To honor all those who died in our nation’s service, the Sequoyah chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution donated a patriotic standing wreath that was prominently displayed at the Memorial Day service held at the Big Canoe Chapel on Monday, May 27. Several of the Sequoyah Chapter members were present for the very moving dedication. After the service, the wreath was moved to The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti and placed at the head of the Fallen Soldiers Table.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 177,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world's largest and most active service organizations. DAR members are committed to volunteer service having served more than 12.5 million hours in communities throughout the world during the past three years.
