The Botetourt County Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) celebrated Veterans Day with a meeting at 11 a.m. on November 11 at The Glebe. After their meeting, they greeted veterans who live there.
Members wrote thank you for your service cards to the veterans who are residents and set up a table with veterans’ buttons and patriotic candies which they gave out to those who stopped by. Some of the veterans shared their stories of their time in the service with the ladies at the table.
The Glebe had also set up tables for these veterans to display their mementos from their time in the service.
