Local members of the Daughters of the American Revolution staged an afternoon tea on Sunday in honor of a visit by the group's state regent.
The Sergeant Newton Chapter (Covington) and the Col. John MacIntosh Chapter (Conyers) were joint hosts for a ladies tea at the home of Stephanie Forston in Covington, to honor and introduce Sally McGlaun Baldwin, the 2010-2012 State Regent. She is a resident of Richland, and the visit marked the start of a week-long circuit of visits with the chapters in District 2 of northeast Georgia.
District Director Rebecca Rostron of McDonough accompanied the regent. The local chapters also played host to guests from the Baron DeKalb Chapter of Decatur, the John Clarke Chapter of Social Circle and the Roswell King Chapter of Atlanta. State Regent Baldwin brought greetings to the members after a brief welcome from hostess chapter regents Claudia Callaway and Sara Frances Hall.
