The chapter presented a donation of books to the Bridgeville Public Library Dec. 10.
A wreath was laid at the gravesite of Nathaniel Mitchell at Old Christ Church in Laurel. Through Wreaths Across America, the chapter donated several wreaths to Barratt’s Chapel in Frederica for the Revolutionary War patriots who are buried there. Members also placed wreaths in honor of a Vietnam veteran and a World War II veteran at the Veterans Cemetery in Millsboro Dec. 19.
