The Colonel Augustin de la Balme DAR Chapter held their annual “Good Citizens Recognition Tea” on February 14. The event was held at the Peabody Public Library in Columbia City.
Guests were the DAR Good Citizens and their parents: Danielle Hartmann, representing Churubusco High School, and her parents Michael and Shawn Hartmann; Abigail Chambers, representing Columbia City High School, and her parents Nick and Jill Chambers; and Stephanie Weigold, representing Whitco High School, and her parents Mike and Tania Weigold.
Stephanie Weigold was the county winner.
Chapter Regent Charlotte Blair shared the history of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Chapter located here in Whitley County. She then presented each girl an envelope containing a certificate acknowledging this award, a copy of the US Constitution, the flag code, a copy of the 2010 Whitley County Calendar compiled by the Chapter, and a monetary award. Each girl also received a DAR Good Citizen’s pin which was pinned on by their mother.
Refreshments were served highlighted with a cake decorated with the DAR emblem and “85” marking the 85th anniversary of the Colonel Augustin de la Balme DAR Chapter.
