Agnes Pruyn Chapman DAR met Nov. 28 at Richards Restaurant, Warsaw, with nine members and one guest.

Following lunch, Regent Kathy Gawthrop led the opening rituals. She then introduced the speaker, Sarah Baier, from KC Recycling.

Baier goes into the community to educate on recycling, spending most of her time in school classrooms. Each person in Kosciusko County contributes approximately 4 pounds of trash daily to landfills. That amounts to 128 million pounds of trash in Kosciusko County. KC Recycling is part of Solid Waste Management, a state-mandated program since 1992. Their goal is to reduce the trash that goes into the landfills by recycling everything possible. They have bins to collect paper, recyclable plastic and glass. They also accept electronics, small household appliances, household chemicals, paint, oil and batteries. It is illegal in Indiana to put electronics in the trash. KC Recycling Depot is at 220 S. Union St., Warsaw.

Evelyn Rake read the president general's message. Gawthrop read an article from American Spirit magazine featuring Jackie Walorski. She is a DAR member of the Elkhart chapter as well as a U.S. Congress representative.
