September meeting of the Knightstown DAR Chapter

The regular meeting of the Major Hugh Dinwiddie Chapter of the DAR met at noon at the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Greenfield with Dianne Taylor as hostess. All enjoyed a delicious meal.

The meeting opened in ritual form lead by our Regent, Dianne Taylor. Sherry Rigney read the National Defense. It was about Emergency preparedness by FEMA. Louise Baldock read the President General’s message. This was about The American Spirit Magazine and the GEP courses available to members. Roll call was called with 12 members present.

Denise Akers read the minutes for May and June. Dianne Taylor gave the treasurer’s report. We have a balance of $219.91. A motion to approve as is and second was by Darlene Petry and Sherry Rigney.

It was announced that the cost has gone up $7 for yearly dues and applications. Dianne Taylor handed out program books. Program books were gone through to revise or update anything needed such as phone numbers and emails.

It was brought up by Amelia Wyatt to talk about dropping the essay contests for the Knightstown and Tri schools. We would continue with the Good Citizen. This was tabled for further discussion.

An email from Marianne Marshall was shared. The District Meeting held in August at Brookville had been attended by Dianne Taylor, Janet Johnson, and Denise Akers. The Chapter received a Chapter Achievement Award, level 3 for the year 2012-2013.

Constitution Week is Sept 17-23. There will be a window display at the Knightstown Historical Society by Janet Johnson.

There is a new committee formed in National to keep track of volunteer hours of all members. The members are asked to think about any community service they do in their areas and be ready to report this service at the next meeting. Forms will be ready for them to fill out at that time. This committee wants to record 1 million hours of community service by the DAR members. This committee is called “Celebrate America.”
