The April meeting of the Old Bute Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was recently held in the home of Virginia Grissom.

Sara Davis, chapter regent, gave a report on the two schools operated by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution — the Kate Duncan Smith school in Alabama and the Tamassee school in South Carolina. She also spoke on the 10 schools and colleges that have been approved for financial support and scholarships through the DAR, one of which being the Crossnore School in Avery County. Crossnore was approved due to the influence of the past DAR state regent Louisa Cooper, a native of Vance County.

Susan Floyd announced plans during the meeting for a ceremony in May to properly destroy American flags deemed unfit for further use. The ceremony will follow instructions provided by the United States Flag Code. A location for the public to drop off worn flags will be announced.
