Dorothy Q Chapter, DAR

The Elston House, home of the Dorothy Q Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recently received some improvements. Gregory Gray, with Troop 318 Scouts BSA in Crawfordsville, did the work to complete the requirements for his Eagle Scout project. His project included installing a flag pole and doing landscaping at the front of the house. In order to complete this project, Gregory had to make a plan, have it approved, raise the money to purchase the needed supplies, and then supervise the completion of the project. Over two Saturdays in August, with the help of several volunteers, the flagpole was installed, the front flower beds received new edging, borders were built around the sign and new flagpole, and new mulch spread in all areas. Gregory will be holding a dedication ceremony for the project at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Elston House. The public is invited to join Gregory and the members of the DAR in dedicating this project.
