The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution met recently at the First Presbyterian Church to hear Dr. Eric V. Morrow, an instructor in the Department of Social Sciences at Tarleton State University. Dr. Morrow’s topic was “Deficits, Death Panels and Democracy: A Citizen’s Guide to Engaging with Public Policy.” Dr. Morrow explained the importance of bridging the gap between what we know and what we do not know. This is our responsibility as citizens in a democracy. He presented information on the many resources available for help in forming opinions and engaging in advocacy with knowledge.

Daughters of the American Revolution are dedicated to the promotion of historic preservation, education and patriotism. Anyone interested in becoming a member can call Dottie Corbin at 968-4510 or Linda Bowden at 958-6880.
