On January 7th 2016, the Robert Gray Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, (D.A.R.), in Hoquiam, WA, inducted 5 new members into their organization; Diane Carter, Kristi Beitzel, Susan Carter, Sandra Sterling and Barbara Sturm. Susan and Barbara are the daughters of long time member, Barbara Carter who stood in for daughter Barbara, a resident of Alaska, at this ceremony. Membership in this organization requires documented verification of direct lineal descent of an ancestor that was actively involved in the establishment of our great Nation. The DAR continually works to honor all these ancestors and to promote their ideals. We are always eager to welcome any other who can qualify into our fold.
"The Robert Gray Chapter is honored to bring these 5 ladies into the DAR, remembering the struggles that all our fore bearers went through in the fight for our Countries Independence. This Chapter is a rather small one and to be able to welcome this many is a tribute not only to them, but to all who assisted them throughout the application and approval process. We are now all sisters under the DAR Banner," proclaimed Vera E. McGuire, the Chapter Regent.
