Members of the Ardmore Daughters of the American Revolution organized a special Mother's Day collection of comfort items for female soldiers to be sent to the 1245th and 345th Transportation companies currently serving in Iraq.

Chapter members collected items at the Ardmore Public Library and in Tishomingo.

Regent-elect Nell Truitt said, "As DAR members and as mothers, we understand and appreciate the sacrifices our women in the military are making on our behalf. This is one small way that we can say thank you and let them know we support their efforts."

Collections for these units will continue at the May 1 chapter meeting at noon in the Ardmore Public Library. The meeting will be a celebration luncheon honoring outgoing officers and new members who have joined in the past year.

Oklahoma State DAR first vice regent Mary Duffee will install the 2008-10 executive board.
