The monthly meeting of the Henderson-General Nicholas Herkimer Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution convened in the community room of Margaret Reaney Memorial Library and Museum in St. Johnsville on June 25 with Regent Patricia Sponburgh Couchman presiding.
Minutes of previous meeting were read by Jean Messick, secretary. Registrar Jane Klump gave a report on new DAR membership applications sent in to the national office, as well as the business report for the Hoyer Hill Cemetery. The Henderson chapter has taken care of the cemetery for over 40 years.
It was reported by Couchman this year’s Ada Root Scholarship went to Emily Guzewich, a graduating senior from Herkimer Central School. In a thank you note from Guzewich she said, “I am proud and pleased to be the recipient. In the fall, I will be attending SUNY Albany. My dream is to become an English teacher.”
