Chapter Gilbert Marshall’s American History Committee donated books to Pine Forest Elementary in Maumelle on September 16, 2021.
The committee purchased 24 new hard and paperback books which were presented to Yolanda Thomas, Principal, and Diane Wagner, Librarian. The books were about historical American Women such as Sybil Ludington, Betsy Ross and Abigail Adams, as well as the Constitution, and were chosen for all grade levels K-5. At least 2 copies of each book were presented. One coloring book of “Famous American Women” was provided for teachers to make classroom copies. Books were ordered from the DAR Store and Amazon. The staff was thrilled with the donation and welcomed our chapter members for a presentation in the school library!
