The Jamestown Chapter National Daughters of the American Revolution met recently at the chapter house to present the National DAR Community Service Award to Peter Carlo.
Carlo was recognized for presenting American flags, to organizations, schools and community faculties. The flags have been flown over the U.S. Capital Building in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Rep. Brian Higgins' office was represented by Lee Ann Jordan, who presented Carlo with a special certificate of commendation from Higgins. Letters from many of the recipients were also presented to Carlo. Carlo presented the DAR with a flag for the chapter house as well as a small American flag to each DAR member.
