Sycamore Chapter DAR holds Feb. 13 meeting

The Sycamore Chapter DAR met on Saturday, Feb. 13 at the Historical Society Building in West Union. Meeting was called to order by Vice Regent Colleen Shoemaker in the absence of Regent Shirley Pell. All members present recited the DAR Ritual, Pledge to the American Flag, The American’s Creed and the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States.

In deference to our speaker’s schedule the program was next on the agenda. Diana Lawrence, representative for Troop Box Ministries of Hamersville, was the speaker. She gave a very informative presentation regarding their ministry of preparing and sending care packages of every sort of item to our troops serving overseas. This is a volunteer organization and everything sent is donated by individuals as well as businesses in the area. She asked for names and addresses of any service members we know of as well as welcoming all volunteers to package and mail items. The organization distribution center is located at 2775 Watson Road, Hamersville, Ohio 45130 and the phone number is 513-490-2398.

After the speaker’s presentation, the regular meeting resumed.

Devotions were led by Colleen Shoemaker in the absence of Chaplain Linda Jacobs. Devotions were based on Hebrews 4:16. The motion to donate $100 to the Troop Box Ministry was made by Gayla Fritzhand and seconded by Nancy Atkinson, motion carried. The idea is to bring up the National Day of Service observance at our next meeting for motion.

The President General’s message from the January/February issue of Daughters’ magazine as written by Lynn Forney Young was ready by JoAnn White. The State Regent’s message was read by Nancy Atkinson. Roll call was answered by Colleen Shoemaker, Gayla Fritzhand, Regina Justice, Nancy Atkinson, Linda Mendenhall and JoAnn White, by naming some of the roles George Washington served during Colonial times.

The Secretary’s report was presented by Gayla Fritzhand. The Treasurer was absent, hence no report. We are not sending a delegate to the State Meeting this spring.

The National Defense report by Linda Mendenhall concerned the recent terrorist attack in Columbus on a local restaurant. Nancy Atkinson reported sending grave markers for Ann Bettison and Josephine Midkiff. The research for a grave marker for American Revolutionary soldier James Miller was tabled until more information is received by either the National Office or the descendant requesting the marker.

Colleen Shoemaker read an article on the American flag. The nomination committee for upcoming election of officers will be Nancy Atkinson, Colleen Shoemaker and Lucille Gelter. West received a thank you note from the Veterans Home in Georgetown for our Christmas donation to the Adams County veterans there. The group also received a thank you for the donation of knitted scarves from the Wilson Children’s Home.

In responses to an article from the State Treasurer, it was noted that dues from our chapter have been paid in full. A review was made of members at least 90-year old this year for a card program. The Regent will contact the present secretary regarding her wishes to remain at that post.

The motion to adjourn was made by JoAnn White, seconded by Gayla Fritzhand. Motion carried. At the close of the meeting, refreshments were served by the committee assigned to the meeting.
