NY State Historian, Patrice Birner, presented a program on “Margaret Cochran Corbin: The First Woman to Receive a Military Pension.”

The local DAR chapter members and the PFC. Joseph P. Dwyer Peer to Peer Volunteer Program Coordinator, Catherine Schmidt, put together a day of comfort and well-being for the women who attended the program.
