Suzann Wagoner of Mount Vernon, vice regent of Cadron Post Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, speaks to fourth-graders at Mount Vernon-Enola Elementary School about Christopher Columbus. Each year, the national society encourages observation of special commemorative events such as Columbus Day, which is Oct. 12. Waggoner also distributed Junior American Citizens membership cards, pens and American flags to the approximately 50 students. She told the students replicas of two of Columbus’ ships — the Nina and the Pinta — will be in Pine Bluff at the Pine Bluff Regional Park through Sunday, Nov. 6, and will be in Fort Smith at the Daley Fleeting Service from Friday, Nov. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 20. The Columbus Foundation sponsors that display. SUBMITTED PHOTO
