Mr. Wheeleses gave an informative program to chapter members last fall on Revolutionary Soldiers that settled in Heard County and is involved with other activities within our local chapter and the Heard County community.

President Wheeleses honored Pamela Lyle with the SAR Medal of Appreciation for her assistance with research that made it possible for six new SAR members to join the Carrollton SAR chapter.

In addition to the medal, Regent Lyle was also presented with a certificate. This coveted medal is one of only three medals presented to women within the SAR organization.
