WAKE FOREST — The General James Moore Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution held their first meeting of the 2015-16 year Sept. 15, at the Wake Forest Historical Museum.
The guest speaker was Paula Hudson Hildebrand, chief health and community relations officer for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, who provided an educational presentation on the process of evaluating and responsibly managing cherished items from a loved one’s ancestral home.
Three new members were officially sworn in by Chaplain Dianne Hoyle — Wanda Mandeville, Janie Smith and Judie Pahnke.
