      The Georgia Daughters of the American Revolution held a workshop to get members up to date and on the same page.

      Albany was the third stop, out of four, state DAR members made with the traveling workshop.

      About 160 members from all over Georgia met Friday at the First United Methodist Church in Downtown Albany.

      "We cover the whole state and if they can't come to one of the other workshops up there or they have friends down here, we encourage them to come to this workshop so that's how we were able to have so many," said Kathy Fazekas with the Daughters of the American Revolution.

      DAR promotes patriotism, preserving American history and education. It is open to any woman who is related to a patriot from the American Revolution.
