Veterans honored by Shelby Chapter DAR

Posted

Shelby Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution hosted a joint meeting and lunch on Jan. 27, at Riverbend Country Club. Special invited guests were members from Tullahoma and Lewisburg DAR chapters.

State First Vice Regent Emily Robinson delivered a greeting from Tennessee DAR Regent Cecile Wimberley, who was unable to attend.

The special gathering, according to Shelbyville Regent Ardis Rittenberry Caffey, was held to honor veterans from all three of the chapters. "Goals of the state DAR . . . doing patriotic work with veterans, education and preserving history. This was the Shelby Chapter's way of showing respect for veterans."

Amy Martin, local Quilt of Valor representative, uniquely designed and wrapped each veteran honored with their own special quilt. The national QOV program, which has wrapped over 200,000 veterans since its inception, was inspired by the mom of a soldier serving in Iraq.

Each person in attendance also received a small U.S. flag and a bookmark featuring the Pledge of Allegiance.

Social distancing protocols were observed.
