FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Chestatee River chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has adopted a portion of Settingdown Road as part of the Adopt-A-Road program. Members were asked to select from a variety of dates to meet at the roadside and collect litter.
The first date they will meet will be Saturday, April 27.
Members of the Chestatee River DAR represent a wide cross-section of women, from youngest junior members to those "daughters" whose ages reach into retirement age.
Adopting a portion of Settingdown Road gives concerned members the opportunity to help their community by collecting litter and beautifying streets in their neighborhood.
Georgia's Adopt-A-Highway program enlists citizen volunteers' help to remove litter from state roadsides.
The Chestatee River chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated their 10th anniversary April 13 with a luncheon at the Country Club of the South. Guest speaker was State Regent, Mrs. Virginia Grace Lingelbach.
The Chestatee River chapter has grown from 46 to 57 members in the last year.
