Regent Judy Mahal called the meeting to order. The DAR Ritual, Pledges and “The American’s Creed” and “The Star Spangled Banner” were recited. The monthly “National Defense” report was read. It mentioned that George Washington was responsible for suggesting a special award medal in 1782 – we know it as “The Purple Heart.”
We will participate, as in the past, with presenting a ribbon with a medal pendant to be presented to an outstanding cadet who excels and meets the DAR criteria to the Junior ROTC program on April 15.
DAR member, Teri Moss, presented a program on “Creative Memories.” Teri showed us how we could create different types of albums. Some could be dedicated to certain family members, photos of relatives who participated in wars, really old photos only, special interest albums, vacations only – there’s no limit on what a person can do. Just start, get all the photos assembled from drawers and boxes, start going through them. Write on back or under photo who the individuals are. Don’t keep putting it off. Also some tips such as using two-sided tape.
All women whose ancestor served our country during the American Revolution are invited to attend. We welcome guests. For more information call 783-8592.
