The regular meeting of the William Wilson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution me at 7 p.m. on Jan. 21 at First American Title.

The meeting was called to order by the Regent, Dixie Drake, who welcomed the members and guest.  The scripture was given by Marion Nolan. The Pledge of Allegiance, led by Ellen Eichhorn, was recited by the members.  The American’s Creed was recited in unison.  Drake reported on the President General’s message and Carley Hazelton gave the National Defense Report.  The National Committee report was given by Hazelton also.

The program, given by Eichhorn, was titled “America’s First Architect”.

The minutes of the Oct. 15, 2020 meeting were approved as read.  Nothing was reported in the communications and bills.  In unfinished business, volunteer hours were discussed, with 550 hours being reported.

The DAR Santa Fe Trail markers, as discussed by Drake, will not be moved.  The expenditure is too costly for the DAR William Wilson Chapter to relocate the makers to their appropriate locations.  Hazelton made a motion that the trail markers not be moved. The motion carried.

In new business, the next meeting for the chapter will be moved to Feb. 25.  The KSDAR State Conference will be April 22-24.  a motion was made by Nolan to elect Hazelton as a delegate to the State Conference. The motion carried.

A motion was made by Hazelton to reinstate Dana Pfanenstiel as a member of the William Wilson Chapter.  The motion carried.
