The St. Joseph Bay Chapter of the DAR in Port St. Joe is recognizing its Founding Regent's 98th birthday at the meeting Wednesday, Sept. 25 at the Sunset Coastal Grill.

Mrs. Elizabeth Ball Fensom was a member of St. Andrew Chapter in Panama City when she started getting a group together to form a new chapter in Port St. Joe.  The first meeting of the St. Joseph Bay Chapter was held Oct. 23, 1975 with 25 members present.  

They selected the Chapter name of St. Joseph Bay because of the historical significance of the bay since 1492. 

Mrs. Fensom turns 98 on Sept. 22 and enjoys her DAR friends and meetings.   For the last several years, she has held the office of Parliamentarian.
