The Rebecca Boyce Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution held its November meeting at First United Methodist Church of Waxahachie, with Regent Vicki Williams presiding. With more than 30 in attendance, it was noted that 20% were perspective or pending members. The newest member, Corbette Timmer, was inducted into the chapter with a special ceremony. Timmer is a descendent of Mrs. John Sidney Farrar, who founded the Rebecca Boyce Chapter in 1948.
The speaker was Lee Johnson, a volunteer from the Waxahachie Senior Center, who is involved in the STEM Garden project at the center. The garden was established five years ago “to provide educators a physical location, educational apparatus and tools to teach STEM-based curriculum, and to bridge the generation gap by providing qualitied senior citizens the opportunity to meet with young people and share the knowledge they have gained as professionals or knowledge experts.”
“Due to the pandemic, the STEM garden is currently closed, but we are all looking forward to the day when this excellent facility will be open once again!” a spokesman said.
