Erika O’Reilly of Peachtree City was the recent recipient of the General Daniel Newnan Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, Good Citizen Award.
O’Reilly’s essay on “How our Freedoms and Responsibilities as Good Citizens is Changing” was perfectly on topic and from the perspective of our young Americans of today, said chapter members.
