Daughters of the American Revolution present unearthed WWI posters

Pictured are, from left, Pam Harris, James Harris, Amy Barrett, Myra Rhodes and Pamela Marshall.

The three area chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution participated in the Brazos County commemoration of the centennial of World War I. The outreach for local World War I information led to the discovery of posters of handwritten lists of Edge residents who were fighting in World War II. The posters were stored in the Edge Community Center for many years and saved from destruction by the Edge Community Center board of directors.

Members of the Come and Take Chapter recently presented the conserved and framed posters to James and Pam Harris. The posters are now displayed in the Edge Community Center.
