The check will be used to purchase memorial books to be placed in the library’s genealogy section in honor of three members the chapter lost in 2017: Jane Garrett Philips, Mary Tom Drew, and Geraldine “Jeri” Haag James, who was an Organizing Member and Amelia Island Chapter Past Regent.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is the largest women’s service organization in the world and contributes over one million volunteer hours a year. The almost 200 members of the Amelia Island Chapter contribute approximately 5,000 volunteer hours and $4,000 in scholarships and awards in Nassau County each year.
