The regular meeting of the Major Hugh Dinwiddie Chapter of the DAR met at 1 p.m. on Oct. 5 at at Judy Martin’s home near Knightstown. Nine members were present.

The meeting opened in ritual form led by our Regent Dianne Taylor. The National Defense was shared. Linda Ashwell read the President General’s message about the tours and business activities of the President General, Lynn F. Young.

Minutes for the past month were read. Judy Martin gave the treasure’s report. A motion to approve as corrected and seconded was by Betty Foster and Carolyn Engelking.

We thanked Janet Johnson for her Constitution Week window display at the Knightstown Historical Society.

NSDAR is excited to announce the launch of a new online reporting system where members can record the number of hours they performed volunteer service work. The Celebrate America! initiative challenges all DAR members to work together to achieve a goal of one million hours of community service each year during the Young Administration. Forms were passed around for Community Service records. They will then be put on the online form.

Denise Akers was recognized with a pin for indexing over 4,600 surnames in the Genealogical Indexing Project.

Martha Barnhardt of the Ft. Wayne Chapter sent an invitation for our Chapter to come up for a visit. Vikkie Witham reported on the American History Contest. Information on the Tomassee and Kate Duncan Schools was shared and discussed.

The program on John Witherspoon was presented by Judy Martin. John Witherspoon, 1723 - 1794, came to Princeton University with over 300 of his own books. He was the only Clergyman and University President to sign the Declaration of Independence.

The next meeting on Nov. 2, 2013, will be at the Shirley Christian Church with Sherri Rigney and Denise Akers as hostesses.
