In the News – May 2017

The Fort Caswell Rifle Range Derby Day fundraiser and Commemoration of US Involvement in World War I were recently featured in several publications. More links will be added soon.


The National Centennial flag is admired by some of the valuable volunteers that recently worked at the Derby fundraiser. Pictured are: (Left to right) Helen Radcliffe, Betsy Hamer, Jayne Rankin, Norma Eckard, Connie Hendrix and Dianna Suttle. The centennial flag will continue to be used at future events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War 1.


The North Carolina Daughters of the American Revolution newsletter for the month of May, (courtesy of The Tar Heel Patriot, Patricia Poe, Editor), included four pages dedicated to the recent commemoration and a feature on the rifle range. Read the pages here.

A reprint of the story in the DAR newsletter about the commemoration was also printed in the Brunswick Beacon last week. ( A subscriber login is required to read archived issues.)

Norman Sprinthall’s letter to the editor to Star News was published on Thursday, May 11. It’s the second letter on this page.

Thank you, Norman and the DAR for supporting the stabilization of our rare and valuable piece of World War I history!
