ELDORADO -- DAR members celebrate the National DAR Day of Service each year on the anniversary of the organization's founding -- Oct. 11.

DAR was founded on the ideals of service and members have been dedicated to giving back to their communities through volunteer initiatives ever since.

The Shawnee Forest Chapter NSDAR held its day of service on Tuesday, Oct. 13. We had a good day at the Wolf Creek Cemetery in Eldorado cleaning the headstones of Revolutionary War soldier Private Reuben Bramlett, two Bramlett descendants' stones and one stone of Civil War Soldier, Benjamin Vessels. It was an honor to be able to make these names visible again for visitors that come to the cemetery.

Chapter members attending were Lisa Thomas, Regent, Liz Davenport, Treasurer, Diana Taylor, Secretary, BJ Morgan, Chaplain and Christy Short, Registrar.
