Xavier Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented a quilted wall hanging to the Fairview E.S. Brown Heritage Corp. to be exhibited in the restored school building.
The wall hanging was designed by quilter and American Heritage Chairwoman Sandra Salmon. Many of the past students and their relatives were interviewed and submitted original drawings showing activities there in 1923. All of these activities were included in the wall hanging.
It was presented to Fairview chairman Joyce Perdue Smith at the October meeting of the chapter by Salmon and Barbara Stegall, chapter historic preservation chairwoman.
“Not only do we honor our historic preservation with this wall hanging to commemorate the Fairview School of 1923 but we honor the patriotism of these children and teachers who started their morning off, standing at attention, hands over heart, with eyes on the United States flag and pledged their allegiance,” Stegall said.
The DAR’s mission since 1890 has been to promote American historic preservation, education and patriotism.
