The Champlain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) helped the Lewis Congregational Church celebrate their Bicentennial with a program about veterans of the War of 1812 who had been residents of Lewis. Featured in the program were Deacon Levi Brown, the Burpee family, Joe Call, Asa Farnsworth, Captain Levi Frisbie, the Holcomb Brothers, the Lee Brothers, Captain John Lobdell, the Nicholson family, Job Stafford, General Luman Wadhams, the Westcott Brothers, and the Woodruff Brothers. Some members of the Chapter are descended from some of these veterans. Pictured are DAR members Betty Band, Jean Dickerson, Judy Martin, Norma Goff, Becky Bosley, Janet Cross, Juanita Napper and Betty White.
