PROGRAMS & NEWS

To all DAR Members,
As the new Program Committee Co-Chairs, we have been coming up
with many ideas that we feel be interesting and exciting options for
our 2013-14 year.

We started by organizing our thoughts into the different areas that the DAR highlights: Preservation, genealogy, patriotism, veterans, friendship, history, scholarship, education/children, and landmarks. We then placed our ideas into eachof these categories...our calendar and program schedule was created tying these ideas into the different seasons/holidays...they are attached below. We hope you like our ideas and look forward to seeing you, family and friends at all our meetings. Warm Regards,
Gail & Diane
Gail Skead Cohen Diane Raimo McManus
