DAC members tour Shook/Smathers House
The Augustine Washington II Chapter of Daughters of the American Colonists
met at the Shook/Smathers House in Clyde. Following the business
meeting, a tour of the house was led by Docent and DAR member Sharon Shook.
Several of the DAC members are descendents of the Smathers family, who were the second owners of the house.
In addition to the tour, members brought food and comfort items to send to
troops stationed in Djibouti, Africa. This post is at the Combined Joint Task
Force - Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA). The task force builds and strengthens
partnerships to contribute to the security and stability in East Africa.
Members donated approximately 25 pounds, valued at approximately $100.
