On Sept 16 , Bay Village's Martha Devotion Huntington Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution joined with Hannah Luther Bosworth Chapter in Strongsville to host the Ohio Society DAR state regent Nancy Schirm Wright at the North Royalton Library. In attendance were 60 members of nine Northeast Ohio DAR chapters.

Following lunch, the state regent presented her program, "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Mrs. Wright spoke of the history of the many service programs and projects throughout the history of the DAR and the current missions of DAR to "sow the seeds of service, outreach and love."

Mrs. Wright also spoke on the history of the Waldschmidt Homestead which the Ohio Society DAR owns and of which she is trustee. Christian Waldschmidt was a Revolutionary War patriot; his homestead is located in Camp Dennison, Ohio. The homestead is open to the public May through October on Sunday afternoons.

Members of DAR have proven lineal descent from an ancestor who provided service in the American Revolutionary War. For membership information, contact Doris Gorgas at
