West Tennessee District Workshop is an opportunity for The Tennessee Society of Daughters of the American Revolution to provide training and share information.
Tennessee State Regent Cecile Wimberly recently spoke about the goals of her administration for the next three years.
She has selected the Dogwood as a symbol of her administration because it symbolizes strength, perseverance, and family.
Across the state Daughters will be involved in efforts to plant trees, recognize Tennessee’s place in securing the 19th Amendment, making sleeping mats for homeless veterans, supporting Little Libraries, and many other activities.
Chief Piomingo Chapter, NSDAR, had a record turnout of 17 Daughters. Several members presented displays about various projects taking place throughout the state, such as DAR & DNA, the American History Scholarship, the State Regentâ€™s Project. Members also volunteered their time to various aspects of the Workshop.
District Workshop also had a graduation ceremony for any members who have completed the members course or the New Horizons course. Chief Piomingo had two of the three graduates for the members course.
Additionally Daughters made donations of sheets and laundry detergent for service members. DAR Schools received donations of Walmart gift cards.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War.
