Wolfeboro Historical Society receives DAR award

WOLFEBORO —The Winnipesaukee Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution presented the Wolfeboro Historical Society with a Historic Preservation Award from the National Society of DAR during the historical society's recent Colonial Day, held at the Clark House.Nancy Ramos, the DAR chapter's regent, welcomed guests and gave a brief history of the Clark House museum before presenting the award to society President Jim Rogers and his officers. The award is presented to groups or individuals that have met the DAR's criteria in historic preservation.

The Clark House was built in 1778 and was once the family home on a 100-acre working farm. Joseph Clark purchased the house in 1817, and three generations of his family lived there until 1917, when the house and remaining land were donated to the town for use as a living history museum.

In the summer of 1929, Winnipesaukee DAR members conducted tours at the house, now, 90 years later, the chapter is helping to give tours again.

Mercy Hathaway White DAR honors past regent

Merle Dustin, regent of the Mercy Hathaway White Chapter of DAR, presented former regent Angela Lavoy with a certificate of appreciation during the chapter's meeting this month for her work to preserve chapter events on DVDs. The topics covered by Lavoy were the 25th anniversary of wedding gowns; 9/11, for which she received DAR national recognition; DAR pins; the chapter's centennial; and the meaning of the 13 folds of the American flag. Lavoy gave a copy of each DVD to the chapter, so they can be part of the chapter's ongoing history and saved for future generations.
