The Crab-Orchard chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution will present the Community Service Award for 2006 to a local volunteer at its monthly meeting on April 20 at 3:30 p.m. at the First National Bank of Tennessee, 1386 North Main Street.

The national level award was established by the DAR National Board of Management in 1993 as an avenue through which members of local communities may be considered for DAR recognition at the chapter and state levels for voluntary achievements in cultural, educational, humanitarian, patriotic, historical, and citizenship endeavor, or in environmental conservation.

The program for the meeting will feature Mark Thurman of the Wildlife Resources Agency who will discuss "Otters on the Cumberland Plateau," a timely subject since the otter is the mascot of the Cumberland County Sesquicentennial Celebration in 2006 and is indigenous to this area.

All women 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is invited to attend.

Hostesses for the meeting will be Priscilla Rosseter and Mary Nina Davis.
