DAR honors four students

The Mt. Diablo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) presented Good Citizen Awards to four local high school girls at its annual Christmas Tea in December. The girls honored were Susan Friedberg from Monte Vista High School; Carolyn Talley from San Ramon Valley High School; Jenna Schuck from California High School; and Megan Kirkaldie from Athenian High School. Their parents, teachers and counselors were also at the tea.

These awards are based on the students' academic standing and participation in school and community activities.

The Mt. Diablo Chapter meets in the Vista Room at Hillside Clubhouse in Rossmoor at 11:45 a.m. the second Tuesday of the month. At its next meeting, Jan. 9, Past California State Secretary Cheryl Rios will present a program on DAR Insignia: The Significance and the History.

DAR welcomes prospective members to attend its meetings. Anyone who has an ancestor that fought in or rendered aid in the American Revolution may be eligible for membership in the DAR. The Mount Diablo Chapter was organized Jan. 10, 1961, by 13 founding members.

For more information, call Chapter Regent Barbara Beratta at 837-8551.
