The local Children of the American Revolution Cuttahotha Society has had a busy schedule recently. Their delivery of books to the Columbus area was highly successful.
That event was followed by several recognitions at the Ohio Society Daughters of the American Revolution State Conference. Rachel Ebert is the first debutante recognized from Champaign County’s C.A.R. Ebert is entering her sophomore year at Wright State University, majoring in childhood education. As a debutante she was presented from C.A.R. to DAR, and was escorted through the Grand Ballroom by her father, Richard Ebert. She was greeted at the podium by the OSDAR State Regent, Sandra McCann. Her honors and various credentials were read as she approached the regent. OSDAR flowers were given to her by her grandmother, Dr. Janet Ebert.
The young woman has held various offices in the local C.A.R. Society, including President. She held a number of offices and earned many honors and scholarships at Urbana High School, and has been welcomed in several groups at WSU.
She continues her membership in the local C.A.R. and is also a member of Urbana Chapter DAR. Recently, she accepted a State Chairmanship of Mountain Schools in the Ohio Society C.A.R., which is another first for the local C.A.R.
Also in attendance at the DAR State Conference was Megan Snyder, serving as a Junior Page. Her service was also a first for the Cuttahotha Society. The Society also was complimented for their exceptional project: taking books to various agencies for persons with special needs.
In other work, the C.A.R. members have participated in preparing 300 pocket flags for a active-duty overseas personnel in Afghanistan.
The flags were folded and placed in 3” X 3” zipper bags by C.A.R. and DAR members under the supervision of the young persons. The pocket flags have been sent through the assistance of a local serviceman deployed in Afghanistan.
The Cuttahotha Society is looking forward to its autumn meetings and new officers recently elected.
