More Than $500 Realized On Dedication Day

Special Correspondence

ROCKPORT, Ind., July 6.—Rockport made more than $500 in dedication day admission fees to Lincoln Pioneer Village Thursday, a cluster of 11 log cabins enclosed in a stockade in the City Park, according to Spencer County Historical Society officials.

In addition, sales of souvenirs brought in many more dollars.

First steps to organize a Spencer County Daughters of American Revolution Chapter were taken this week when a group of Rockport women met with Miss Bonnie Farwell, Terre Haute, state D. A. R. regent, and Mrs. James. Riggs, Sullivan, southern director.

Miss Laura Wright was named organizing regent for the new chapter.
