Chapter members displayed DAR brochures and pictures about
local, state and national projects. A booth visitor chats
with member Judy Stoma and Regent Carolyn Schwender, learns
about the purpose of DAR membership and the ways to trace
a family's Patriot through a variety of internet and in-person
members (l to r) Elizabeth Drake-Shanahan, Judy Stoma (seated),

Robert Maxwell and their wives. The graves of these Revolutionary Patriots are located in the Greenwich Presbyterian Cemetery, Stewartsville, NJ.
