The Abendschone Chapter, NSDAR in Eureka Springs, celebrated the 128th anniversary of the founding of DAR and the National Day of Service at their monthly meeting on October 11, 2018.
A special exhibit at the Eureka Springs Historical Museum opened in April of 2017 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of World War I.
Museum volunteer and Abendschone Chapter NSDAR member, Suzanne Williams, collected items from Carroll County, Arkansas residents for the exhibit. Several NSDAR members made contributions. The exhibit included a uniform, original sheet music, photos, maps of France, a letter from General Pershing, a feed bucket for horses and mules, and mess kits. Visitors were especially interested in the trench art, made from shell casings and spent bullets. The exhibit continued until the end of 2018 and was well received.
