NSDAR CELEBRATES 127TH ANNIVERSARY
Jonathan Hardin Chapter members celebrated the 127th anniversary of the founding of the national organization at its regular monthly business meeting on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at the Gibbs Memorial Library in Mexia. Each year on October 11, chapters across the country chose to celebrate by planning and carrying out a National Day of Service Project.
During the business meeting, Vice Regent Kathleen McKee spotlighted the U.S. Constitution from the National Defense Report as a follow up to Constitution Week September 17-23.
Chapter members were briefed on the annual Service to Veterans project in December by committee chairman and Second Vice Regent Jo Ann Slauson. Specific needs were addressed. Actual and monetary donations may be brought to the November meeting. Gift bags to be taken to veterans in Freestone and Limestone nursing homes will be assembled at the Wednesday, December 6, meeting which will include a covered-dish luncheon for the chapter. Chapter members will deliver gift bags after the meeting.
