During the recent 118th Continental Congress of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, DC, members of the James Waldrop Chapter in Fayetteville, attended a ceremony and wreath laying at the tomb of George and Martha Washington at Mount Vernon.

After attending the ceremony, James Waldrop Chapter Regent Betty Harrah commented, "It was an honor to be able to pay respects to our first President. The reading of George Washington's prayer for his country written in 1783 by DAR member Martha Knight contributed to the solemn ceremony and reaffirmed our devotion to patriotism as Americans."
