FARMINGTON – The Colonial Daughters Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, held a gentlemen’s breakfast at the Homestead Bakery on April 26 for members and their husbands.

Dick Brooks presented a slide program detailing the Corps of Discovery in honor of the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The completion of the journey, culminating in a Northwest passage to the Pacific Ocean, was the plan of then President Thomas Jefferson following the Louisiana Purchase.

Brooks and his wife belong to the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, a national organization consisting of 3,600 members with headquarters in Great Falls, Mont. The group has met yearly at several locations along the trail corresponding with the date the corps stopped.

Mr. and Mrs. Brooks plan to travel to Fort Clatsop, near present day Astoria, Ore., where the journey ended on Nov. 17, 1805, at the mouth of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean.
