The Colonel Abram Penn Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution met on January 8 in the fellowship hall of Stuart Presbyterian Church. Ann McConnell, Chapter Regent, presided with four members present.
Patrick County Master Gardeners, Norma Bozenmayer and Jess Hines presented a program on Colonial Medicines and Cure Alls. The eighteenth-century herb garden, found close to the home, served as the home’s spice rack and apothecary.
A business meeting followed the program. Committee reports were given, and upcoming Chapter events and projects were discussed.
