                                           “The Friendly Organization”       




                                  State Regent’s Project: “Respecting the Past:”

By providing new outdoor information signage at Berkeley Plantation.  Signage around the property of the plantation is in need of replacement due to age and weather.  Berkeley is Virginia’s most historic plantation, an early Georgian Mansion built in 1726.  It is located on the south side of Virginia Route 5 in Charles City between Williamsburg and Richmond.


An emphasis on the National Society Children of the American Colonists is another project this State Regent sincerely hopes to accomplish as NSCAC members are “the Future” for DAC and SAC!  I challenge each chapter to submit an application for at least one new CAC member.  Please be generous and remember our veterans.
