The Amelia Island Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution paid tribute to deceased members by donating books and money to the genealogical collection at the Fernandina Beach Branch Library.
Chapter Librarian Susan Cofield, far right, holds the book donated in honor of past regent Lucinda Jo “Cindy” Glenn, who died last year. A monetary donation was made to honor three other chapter members who have passed away. Standing, next to Ms Cofield are, from right to left, Dawn Bostwick, Director of the Fernandina Beach Branch Library System; Chapter Regent Carol Elefterion; and Elizabeth Reagan Milo, in memory of her mother, Gloria Reagan. Other chapter members honored were Gail Moore and Frances Tabor, who was an organizing (founding) member of the chapter.
