Recently, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), General George Crook Chapter, Prescott, received an urgent request from the grandson of a chapter member serving in Afghanistan. He said: "We have plenty of candy, jerky and trail mix, but what we really want is homemade goodies!" Regent Betsy Bykerk called on the chapter members to come to the soldiers' aid. Members baked cookies, breads and brownies, while some contributed Girl Scout cookies. On Feb. 26, the chapter mailed six large boxes of treats, allowing our troops to enjoy something special from home: love in a box.
