WAKE FOREST — The General James Moore Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, ushered in the holiday season at its November 19 meeting at the Wake Forest Historical Museum.
Following an early afternoon social, refreshments, and the reading of a Thanksgiving Day poem, a presentation was given by guest speaker Agnes Wanman, Wake Forest Historical District planner.
Wanman discussed various Wake Forest historical districts and properties, including the Royall Cotton Mill, Stealy Hall and Forestville Baptist Church. Her nearly 40 years experience as a public planner was evident as she discussed Queen Anne, Italianate and Federal home styles; and the history of front porches.
In addition, the group heard an educational presentation about the proper display of the American flag by Joyce Green, as well as a Veteran’s Day essay written by Nicholas Harvey, a relative of member Connie Nourse.
Business discussions centered on the chapter’s community service activities, support of Wreaths Across America, involvement in the upcoming Wake Forest Community Christmas dinner, etc.
The highlight of the day’s festivities was the celebration of Mollie Rivers’ 100th birthday. She has been an active member of the General James Moore Chapter for 61 years. The group sang and presented Mrs. Rivers with her favorite chocolate — Hershey’s kisses. (See related photo, page xx)
