 Louise Baldock Hosts DAR Group

April 18, 2007 - The Major Hugh Dinwiddie Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met last Friday in Carmel at the home of Louise Baldock.

Baldock gave an interesting account of two “Liberty Trees” at the time of the American Revolution. The first tree was an elm in Boston, Mass., where colonists rallied to protest the Stamp Act. The tree, cut down by Loyalists in 1775, had been a symbol of the colonists’ resistance to tyranny, and a yellow flag was flown from the branches to announce meetings. The second tree, an old tulip poplar in Annapolis, Md., was still standing a few years ago.

Ilarose Cupp gave the National Defense Report on the opening of a high-tech rehabilitation center in San Antonio, Tex., to serve veterans and soldiers who are amputees or victims of severe burns. The center was funded by private donations.

Regent Mary Ann Sitler announced that Logan James Cox, son of Eric and Stacy Cox, won the second place award in the sixth grade level of the Indiana DAR American History Essay Contest.

Refreshments were served by the hostess to members and guests Susan and Madison Linkmeyer, Patricia Cupp and Vania Goodwin. The chapter’s next meeting will be at noon on Friday, May 4, at the Iron Kettle restaurant in Sulphur Springs.
