KSDAR State Conference

 The Kentucky Society Daughters of the American Revolution
State Conference was March 22 - 25, 2018
In Lexington, KY. 
 The chapters in District 3 and 4 were hosts this year. 
The Friday morning session began with the hosting chapter
regents and chapter flag bearers with chapter flags. 
Jennifer Price carried the Berea-Laurel Ridges Chapter flag, and I followed her.
Our chapter was recognized for our contributions 
and service to Veterans. 
The hosting chapters were in charge of making different table decorations
for the lunches, banquet dinners and Sunday brunch.
