Daughters of the American Revolution to hold orientation lunch on Jan. 14

CROSSVILLE — Do you know what DAR stands for?  Do you love God, home and country? Are you eligible to be a member of this woman’s lineage and service organization?  

If you have questions about DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), join members of the Crab-Orchard chapter for a “DAR in Review” lunch, at 11 a.m. on Jan. 14, 2013 in the Cumberland Room at the Art Circle Public Library. Cost for the “Dutch treat loaded baked potato lunch” is $5. Reservations need to be made by calling Joyce Ernst at  788-1457 or Patty Johnson at 484-5587.

This is an orientation meeting to answer questions for new chapter members as well as prospective members who may be interested in learning more about the Crab-Orchard Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

“Old” members, including chapter officers, will be present to meet and greet new members and guests and help answer questions about the society. The informal program will feature a PowerPoint presentation, “The Crab-Orchard Chapter DAR Today: Success and Fellowship through Committees,” a review of chapter activities and projects sponsored for the community, an overview of the chapter’s yearbook and a question and answer session.

“As a recent member of the Crab-Orchard chapter, I’m beginning to learn what an active organization this is,” said Dawn Robb. “I originally joined to honor my Patriot on my father’s side of the family and to keep DAR current within my family. Although I have four sons, I do have three granddaughters, and now they can continue this membership if they wish to do so.”

Robb recently learned that due to the growth of the organization in the state of Tennessee, the state society was divided into five districts in 1935: Appalachian, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Cumberland and Sequoyah Districts. The Crab-Orchard chapter, which serves Cumberland and Bledsoe counties, is one of 17 chapters in the Sequoyah District.

The DAR seeks to make a lasting difference in today’s world by inspiring talented women to join together in DAR’s commitment to expand their service to “God, Home and Country.” Come and join members of the Crab-Orchard chapter for lunch and make DAR friends that last a lifetime.
