— On Oct. 13, the Betsy Baldwin Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter featured guest speaker, Virginia Miller, a member of the General Asa Danforth Chapter in Syracuse.

Miller spoke about her childhood and home, and brought along artifacts she saved including a pewter platter, a four dollar bill, a model of a chair used by furniture makers and a photograph of her home among other items.

Miller also shared stories of her childhood including how she and a sibling cut down a for sale sign in the middle of the night because they didn’t want to move from where they were living. Many years ago when she realized that she was getting out and about less and less, she began volunteering at the local Veterans Hospital in Syracuse, where she is now a frequent volunteer.

The November meeting will be held at 1 p.m. Nov. 21 at the New Legacy Community Room, 7 Legacy Drive, Baldwinsville. The public is welcome to attend.
