Each year Hicksford Chapter, DAR has members to attend a Naturalization Service. 

Recently Patsy Bradley and Ellen Edmonds attended the morning session which was held at the Federal District Court House in Richmond.  The Honorable Roderick C. Young, Magistrar of the Eastern District,  presided. 

During this session there were 69 new citizens welcomed.  The afternoon session was attended by Kay Montgomery and Terry Fields.  There were 71 new citizens from 34 countries who took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States for their very first time.  All present recited the Pledge to the Flag. 

Members of the Hicksford Chapter felt it was a privilege to witness the excitement of the new citizens and their families.  Flags and Flag Codes were given out as each person was greeted by Judge Young and DAR  representatives.
