AUGUSTA — Members of the Koussinoc Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution joined the staff of the First Amendment Museum Sept. 15 to celebrate the 235th birthday of the U.S. Constitution with one of the DAR’s long-standing traditions, Bells Across America.

Every year, Daughters from across the nation gather to ring bells in a short ceremony on Constitution Day to celebrate the “supreme law of the land.”

Any woman who can trace her direct lineage to an ancestor proven to have served in some way for the patriot cause of the American Revolution is eligible to join the DAR. If interested, call Regent Bonnie Wilder at 207-685-4483 to leave contact information.
