D.A.R. member recognized for 50th year of membership
Anne Slater of South Attleboro was recently recognized by the Attleboro Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) for her 50th year as a member of the organization. This milestone is achieved by few members and demonstrates Slater’s decades of commitment to promoting patriotism, preserving American History, and securing America’s future through education and understanding and for her participation in charitable activities which recognize and support veterans.
Slater became eligible to join the D. A. R. due to her proven lineage to a patriot who served in some aspect of the Revolutionary War. Her patriot, George Stone, was member of a regiment in New Hampshire during the war. Before belonging to the D.A.R., she was a member of the Children of the American Revolution (CAR).
While as a member of CAR, Slater served as president of the Samuel Osgood Society CAR in Andover and held various state positions. She first became a member of the D.A.R. in 1969 through the Samuel Adams Chapter in Methuen. Upon moving to the local area, Slater transferred to the Attleboro Chapter D.A.R. She is proud to be an active member of the Attleboro Chapter, supporting the greater Attleboro veterans side by side with members Amy Slater, her daughter and her cousin Stephanie Crocker Carr.
To celebrate this occasion, special guest, Patricia Hatcher, the Honorary Chapter Regent of the Deborah Sampson Chapter in Brockton, who also serves as the State Counselor, District III Director and D.A.R. Leadership Trainer, attended the September D.A.R. meeting and presented Slater with the 50-year membership pin along with her congratulations.
