DAR meeting

The William Wilson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met Nov. 20 at Garden Valley Retirement Village, 1505 E. Spruce St.

The program "Hospice in the Community" was given by the guest speaker, Gina Cash, a Hospice volunteer coordinator.

Carley Hazelton, regent, welcomed the members and a guest. She also reported on the Kansas Daughter's Book and on genealogical workshops.

Dixie Drake gave the President General's message and reported on the V.A. Parade she attended. The National Defense message was reported by Sandra Black.

The minutes were approved after the correction of the installation of officers (registrar by Catheleen Cooper). Cooper reported on the DAR supplement. Corrections/additions were given for the year book.

Members discussed the American History Contest where fifth- to eighth-graders pretend they are a boy or girl during the colonial fight for freedom. More information will be shared at the next meeting.

Hazelton reported on the Bacone Challenge donation, but the chapter decided not to follow through on this. The BC had challenged each DAR chapter to send $100 donations. She also reported on the V.A. Stand Down donation, on the death of associate member Doris Barber, on the cemetery markers and reviewed the American History Contest.

The next meeting will be the chapter's Christmas Coffee, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Garden Valley Church on Third Street (enter from the west side of the church).
