Lydia Barnes Potter Chapter Organized in 2002
The Lydia Barnes Potter Chapter NSDAR is located in Waterford, Oakland County, Michigan. Our chapter was organized by twenty-five charter members on October 5, 2002, with Carol LeMarbe as Organizing Regent.
The first chapter meeting was held at the Waterford Township Police Station in Waterford, Michigan.
One of the first activities held by the new chapter was the honor of retiring the U.S. Flag. This is done when a Flag is weathered and cannot be repaired. This activity was performed at the Waterford Township Police Station in 2002 and it is now tradition that has continued for several years.
