Anthony Morgano/The Reporter Peg Possemato has served as a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution since 2001. Anthony Morgano/The Reporter Peg Possemato, a Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) member since 2001, expressed how the organization has positively affected her life.

“Meetings are very interesting,” Possemato explained, “There are so many topics and every member has the opportunity to put on an educational program.”

Possemato became a member of the Koo Koose chapter of DAR in Deposit after attending a family reunion and learning that her great-great great-grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. While only 12 years old at the time, Possemato’s ancestor served at the Siege in Yorktown, Va.

“I have belonged to many organizations,” Possemato said, “but DAR has been the most rewarding one.”

DAR and the Koo Koose chapter offer a Revolutionary War ancestor search, programs, events and fellowship.
