A Night Out at Dinner Theater

Flag Day Luncheon.

Desert Wells Chapter hosted the Arizona DAR Flag Day luncheon. Our speaker, Howard McDaniel, protrayed Francis Scott Key and told us the story of the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. One of our members, Marcia, dressed up as an alligator and led us in singing, "The Battle of New Orleans," in honor of its anniversary. Husbands dressed as Revolutionary heros and we had a real live active duty hero of husband present! There were lots of laughs, wonderful decorations, and fabulous food. Wish you could have been there!

Williams Field Commemorative Brick.

Jun. 21, 2012

We purchased a commemorative brick at the Williams Memorial Garden commemorating Williams AFB which began in WWII. It is currently closed. Many of our members have a connection with this base. We placed flowers when we dedicated our brick. It was a very special day filled with memories of our fathers and uncles. There were tears in many of our eyes but it was also a good day to be together and remember our heros.
