Washington Chapter DAR
The Washington chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met Dec. 3, at 1:30 p.m. at the Halcyon House in Washington.
Regent Julie Mangold presided over the meeting. Nancy Anderson informed the members of the opportunity to join a bus tour with other DAR members. The theme of the tour is “Be wise, focus on the future of education”; therefore, the tour will include visits to schools that are supported with funds from DAR.
Lois Greiner suggested members read a book titled “Century of Service.” The book is an accurate account of the history of the founding of DAR and how land and buildings were acquired in the Washington, D.C., area. Final plans were made for the Downton Abbey tea, scheduled for 3 p.m. on Dec. 4 at the Washington Public Library. All 60 tickets had been sold. The group was pleased to learn of the thoughtful donation of a teacup collection from Kay Bennett. Plans were for the cups to be used in a window display at the library to promote the tea, and also as gifts at the tea.
There will be no meeting in January or February.
The Washington chapter of DAR welcomes new members. Anyone interested should contact Julie Mangold at 319-698-2033 or any of the other members.
