The Old Bute Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently held its November meeting in observance of Veterans Day.

The luncheon was held in the home of Lynnell Flowe.

Janis Satterwhite, vice regent, expressed the society’s gratitude to veterans at the meeting.

Christmas gifts for the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center were received and Satterwhite volunteered to deliver them.

Satterwhite was the speaker at the meeting. Her presentation focused on veterans in North Carolina. She also spoke on canine veterans and the recognition and care they receive. A large number of military dogs are interred in the Canine Memorial Cemetery in Fayetteville. There, a bronze statue of a Belgian Malinois in battle gear guards the entrance.

Sara Davis, regent, and Virginia Grissom, chaplain, assisted in the DAR ritual.

Davis also announced preliminary arrangements for the chapter to host the District Six Good Citizens Meeting and Lunch in March.
