The Altus Anne Lee Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is planning a luncheon and Research Workshop on Flag Day, Saturday, June 14. The workshop will help you find your patriot ancestors, and teach you how to do research. The event will be held at the Friendship Inn in Altus. It will start by calling the meeting to order at 10:30 a.m., take a break for lunch, and then continue with the research workshop and training time around 12:15 p.m.
