HUNTINGTON — Members of the Westmoreland Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution often participate in community events.

One such event was their participation in the Heritage Farm Summer Festival recently.

Marilyn Sargent Oppenheimer, June Ashworth and Teresa Melvin (all members of the Westmoreland Chapter) wore dresses similar to those worn in the of the 1700s and presented a special program on the American flag to visitors at the farm.

Oppenheimer gave an entertaining and informative portrayal of Betsy Ross while Ashworth had a few samples of the flag and explained their meanings.

Ashworth, regent of the Westmoreland Chapter, is a frequent volunteer at the farm and can be seen at many of their events.
