Timber Miriah has been selected as the California State Society Daughters of the American Revolution, DAR, winner of the DAR Service for Veterans Outstanding Youth Volunteer for 2016. The Kawaiisu Lake Isabella Chapter of the DAR submitted Timber's application at the State level. The Chapter was recently notified that Timber has been selected as the winning applicant; and her application has now been forwarded on to the Southwestern Division Chairman for consideration. If successful at the Division level, her application will then be sent on to the DAR National chairman for judging. This is quite an honor and achievement.
Timber has spent many hours helping our local veterans, not only serving meals, spending time with veterans, or just being a great friend. She raised her own funds to be a Guardian with Honor Flight and was the first minor to be involved. She was a part of SAL and was selected as SAL "girl of the year." She has been recognized for her services by the VFW, the American Legion Riders and the office of Congressman, Kevin McCarthy.
Timber and her mother, Wendy Clark, have been invited to the DAR California State Conference in San Ramon, March 16, 2017, to receive her award and be acknowledged for her outstanding achievements. Timber is a well deserving young women of our Valley and the Kawaiisu Chapter NSDAR is very proud of her.
