    "Studying the Human Animal: A Bigger History"

    Too often humans have "cherry-picked" historical evidence to justify their quests for dominance-rationalizing patriarchy, imperialism, ultranationalism and religious extremism. We can better understand these historical behaviors, and our propensity to be altruistic too, through a recognition that we are animals subjected to the same evolutionary process as other creatures of the earth. As already stated by Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species, "There is grandeur in this view of life."

    Free and open to the public. Kennedy Library | 1700 W. McGalliard Rd. | 765-747-8209 www.munciepubliclibrary.org

    The December meeting for the Paul Revere Chapter of the NSDAR (National Society of the Daughters of American Revolution) is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m., Thursday, December 14, at the Kennedy Library, 1700 W.

    This meeting is open to all current and potential members of the DAR. The organization consists of ladies 18 years and older who have verified or working towards verifying one or more descendants as a patriot of the American Revolution.

    The NSDAR was founded in 1890 with the local Paul Revere Chapter founded in 1897. The missions of the DAR are patriotism, education, and historic preservation. Today’s DAR chapters interpret those goals in voluntary service to their communities, schools and students, veterans and active duty military. DAR is a not-for-profit, non-religious organization with more than 185,000 members nationally. For further information, contact Registrar Mary Miller at 765-744-9798 or mrody43@att.net to set up an appointment to explore eligibility of one or more of your ancestors as a Revolutionary War patriot.
