The Bear River Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is sponsoring a garage sale Saturday, August 28, to support the goals of the organization. Local DAR spokeswoman is Linda Croft. “We exist to perpetuate the spirit and memory of people who helped in the American Revolution,” said Croft, “and who provide so much patriotism for us to follow. “We meet on the third Saturday of most months in the Logan Library and we invite leaders in every field of endeavor. We’ve heard from judges, senators, educators, environmentalists, native Americans, career military persons and many others.” Joining the Daughters of the American Revolution is a matter of proving lineage to someone who was a part of that time in American history. “There are specialists who can help research this,” said Croft. “It’s about proving lineage to anyone involved, not just someone who fought in the battles of the Revolution. It may be someone who assisted, such as a nurse or a messenger.” Croft said the Bear River Chapter of the DAR was founded 15 years ago and includes an area that covers from northern Utah into southern Idaho. It is a non-profit organization, thus the need for events like Saturday’s garage sale “We’re raising money for our organization, to fund projects that we do.” The sale will be held at 845 North 200 East beginning Saturday at 8 a.m. Items offered include household goods, toys, professionally freeze-dried food storage and fresh baked goods.
