Dolores Hydock was recognized for her storytelling by the Lily of the Cahaba chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Award-winning actress and storyteller Dolores Hydock was recognized by the Daughters of the American Revolution in March as part of Women’s History Month.
The Lily of the Cahaba Chapter, NSDAR, honored Hydock for her contributions to the community through the age-old art of storytelling. Based on diaries, letters, newspaper clippings and interviews, her original stories transport today’s audiences to different places and different times.
Hydock’s work has been featured nationally at festivals, performing arts series and regional arts council events. She performs at theaters, conference centers, churches, corporate groups and universities. She is an wrtist fellowship winner with the Alabama State Council on the Arts and a member of the Road Scholars Speakers Bureau with the Alabama Humanities Foundation.
The Lily of the Cahaba Chapter meets the second Saturday of the month, September through May. The Chapter is based in Hoover and serves surrounding communities. Any woman is eligible for membership who is 18 years of age and can prove lineal, blood descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
