DAR meeting

The William Wilson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met Jan. 15 at Garden Valley Retirement Village, 1505 E. Spruce St. Sandra Black gave the program "For Love Or Money" and also gave the national defense report. Devotions were given by Cathaleen Cooper. Dixie Drake gave the president general's message and the national committee report on "DAR Magazine." The November minutes were approved as read.

It was announced that Evelyn Kay Burch Farmer has resigned due to ill health. An update was given about the Bacone College donation, in which the chapter declined to participate. Carley Hazelton, regent, reported on a new provider for the cemetery markers project.

The chapter voted to give the Finney County Public Library a two-year subscription to American Spirit magazine. Members worked on a Master Questionnaire and a Chapter Achievement Aware, both due by Jan. 31. They also discussed proposed amendments to the chapter bylaws, including what number shall be a quorum and the addition of an article of dissolution as mandated by the National Board of Management.

NSDAR and the chapter bylaws state that no member shall serve as chapter regent for more than six consecutive years. Hazelton is serving her sixth year so the chapter voted to ask the state regent to request an extended term for her. The next meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 19 at Garden Valley Retirement Village.
