Environmentally conscious Daughters honor local students

Members of the Sun City Agua Fria National Society Daughter of the American Revolution Chapter were invited to a special event at Canyon Ridge Elementary School.

Twila Lobitz, Chapter Regent, Kathie Mittelsteadt, Chapter Parliamentarian, and Shirley Staggs, Honorary Chapter Regent, carpooled to the event as a conservation effort.

Besides carpooling, the Agua Fria Chapter participates in many conservation projects and several chapter members grow vegetables and herbs, have fruit trees, flowering trees and plants in their yards to attract natures pollinators: bees, birds and butterflies.

They also recycle plastics and paper and collect old Christmas card and greeting card fronts to be sent to St Jude’s Children Hospital and NSDAR Hindman School. In their efforts, several members collect old postage stamps for Boys Town, collect pull tabs to support the Ronald McDonald House and collect old eyeglasses and hearing aids for the Lions Club.

To participate in the April National Arbor Day event, Agua Fria NSDAR Chapter purchased Penny Pines to help reforest Arizona forests.

At the Canyon Ridge event, three Arizona National Society Sons of the American Revolution Chapters and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2135 took part in presentations of medals, certificates and money to fifth- through eighth-grade students.

The Saguaro NSSAR Chapter, Barry M Goldwater NSSAR Chapter and Prescott NSSAR Chapter each presented awards to first, second and third place winners who participated in the poster and the brochure making contest.

This year’s theme for the posters and brochures was to depict events before and during the American Revolutionary War, which led to American independence from Great Britain.

The VFW Post also presented awards to two special Canyon Ridge teachers.
