CELEBRATING FREEDOM AND PATRIOTS–Members of the Liberty Bell of the West Chapter of the National Society Daughter of the American Revolution are pictured by the permanent memorial and temporary patriot exhibit by the Randolph County Courthouse on July 4. They are: Kaile Eggemeyer, Emily Lyons, Patsie Hopkins, Donella Butler and Jackie Hopkins.
From July 1-6, those that passed by the Randolph County Courthouse may have noticed a new display encircling the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution monument located by the flags.
Each member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) can trace her ancestry back to a Revolutionary War patriot. Patsie Hopkins, a member of the Liberty Bell of the West Chapter (LBOTW), decided to set up an exhibit honoring all the patriots recognized by the 54 members of the chapter.
In addition to celebrating our freedoms and veterans, the exhibit is also part of Hopkins’ NSDAR New Horizons project.
While visitors were welcome to check out the exhibit any time while it was set up, a small ceremony was held on the morning of July 4.
