Members Pennie Layne and Nancy Larson from Judge David Campbell Chapter, TSDAR, enjoyed a morning visiting Silverdale Baptist School with 65 patriotic first graders. 

The children decided they would use their flags to honor the country’s veterans at their annual Silverdale Veteran’s Day program. There, they will perform “God Bless America”, which the DAR representatives were able to sample on their visit.   

Students learned of patriotism, community heroes, and flag etiquette and were outstanding listeners.  The Judge David Campbell chapter plans on visiting several more elementary schools in Hamilton and Marion Counties in the near future.  

To date they have given out 691 flags. Members have visited Apison, Daisy, McConnell, Monteagle, N. Hamilton, Richard Hardy, S. Pitt, Soddy and Silverdale First Grades and Daisy 4th grades.
