The Signal Hill Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution made a donation to Barrington's White House restoration project in December, and was recognized for their efforts at the Monday, Jan. 13, Village Board meeting in Barrington.
Chapter Regent Kathy Boyle addressed the board and explained how this project was of particular interest to the organization.
"The DAR's mission is to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism," Boyle stated, "As an all volunteer service organization, we are pleased to support our local community, and do our part to help with the restoration of this historic building."
Village Board President Karen Darch and White House Board member Beth Raseman greatly appreciated the chapter's donation. The village plans to restore the 116 year-old White House to create a cultural and community center in the heart of downtown Barrington in time for Barrington's Sesquicentennieal celebration in 2015.
