Two generations of Daughters. Mom down there in the stacks, and I'm haunting the upper level of the Daughters of the American Revolution library. Thinking of all of the Daughters before us. #darcc17#darpages#darjrs#darhq
We're very proud of all our active duty and veteran Daughters, especially @darpages Senior Chief Portz (USCG, WA) and Sgt. Ferreira (US Army, NM) who are both proudly carrying flags this evening! Thank you for your service, ladies! 🇺🇸 #darhq#darcc17#darhq#nsdar#darjrs
Do you recognize those balconies? Today they provide a bird's-eye view of one of the world's best genealogical repositories, but they used to hold dignitaries and Daughters attending early Continental Congresses, like this one in 1913. #tbt#darcc1913#darhq#nsdar [photo: Library of Congress]
Volunteered at the food bank this morning with my DAR friends in the "cooler", sorting frozen goods for Tennesseans in need. Community service is the backbone of the DAR, and it's one of the reasons I choose to be active with this great organization!
#Repost@todaysdar_cc ・・・ Although #darcc17 closed only yesterday, it's never too early to look forward to #darcc18! Linda Hawkins (SC), National Vice Chair for the 2018 Junior Doll, introduced Miss Eliza on Saturday. A vintage 1950s fashion doll that Linda graciously donated, she represents South Carolina's forward-thinking colonial women. She was inspired by Eliza Lucas Pinckney, a DAR patriot who helped start the indigo trade in South Carolina. Follow Miss Eliza's adventures throughout the year on Facebook and meet her in person next summer! #nsdar#darhq#darjrs
Only a red light and a taxi cab can shade the final evening white formal. I'm feeling very emotional. While holding the state flag this evening it hit me how many ladies have come before me, wearing the same all white dresses and gloves, holding the same flags, and going through the same traditions. I am humbled and so blessed to be a part of the Daughters of the American Revolution as a national conference page. I only hope that all of the ladies that came before me would be proud. #darcc17#darpages#darjrs#darhq#washingtondc#summernight#taxi
