A delegation led by Margaret Wulfkuhl, vice regent of the Betty Washington Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, presented a U.S. flag Oct. 8 to the Ballard Community Center. Each year the local chapter presents a flag that has flown over the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The presentation included the singing of the "Star-Spangled Banner," by 4-year-old Perry Tong, a preschooler at the center.

The highlight of the club's October meeting was a slide show given by Virginia Wulfkuhl, daughter of member Margaret Wulfkuhl. Virginia is a public archivist for the Kansas State Historical Society. The presentation was the excavation and restoration of El Quartelejo, the only-known pueblo in Kansas. El Quartelejo is in Scott County and was inhabited by Taos Indians who settled with a band of Plains Apaches in 1664.

Each member also was given a copy of the Kansas State Historical Society's recent publication showing the locations of state historical markers and giving a brief description of the significance of each.
