D. A. R.-POD 3/11/10
Yesterday, my daughter, was presented an award by the Daughters of the American Revolution Kuykendal Chapter in Flat Rock, NC. She won an essay contest about the Transcontinental Railroad for all of the 7th grade students in our district. Her essay was from the perspective of one of the Chinese laborers. She had to go to their meeting and read her essay to the members. This was a pretty exciting and nerve-wracking experience for her but she did a great job answering questions and "schmoozing" with the little ladies who were at the meeting.
