DAR Weekend

 Several members of the Berea-Laurel Ridges Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution
attended a weekend event in Lexington with President General Lynn Forney Young
as the guest of honor and featured speaker.  
The President General is elected for a three year term. During her term,
she is required to visit all 50 state societies and the international societies. 
She told us about her recent brief and very interesting meeting in England with the Queen. 
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a women's service
organization whose members can prove lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolution
was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism historic preservation, and education.  
2015 is the 125th Anniversary of DAR.
