On the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) “Day of Service”, DAR members all over the world celebrate the anniversary of  the October 11, 1890 founding of the organization by participating in special volunteer service projects.

For the sixth annual DAR “Day of Service”, the Richards Dobbs Spaight (RDS) Chapter delivered “Art Bags” to 23 Foster Families of Craven and Pamlico Counties. The families received art supplies ranging from crayons, colored pencils, markers, play dough/modeling clay, sketch pads, coloring books, glue, scissors, watercolor paints and construction paper, to supplies for paper bag puppets and paper plate crafts such as pompoms, pipe cleaners, craft sticks, stickers and feathers. Each child received fall and winter bookmarks to color, Christmas ornaments to make, and Thanksgiving placemats to color and share with their families.
