My First DAR Meeting
It's been a long-time goal of mine to become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Last night I got a little closer to achieving that goal, by attending my first DAR meeting as a guest of the Prairie Rose chapter in Overland Park, KS. I was very moved by the experience, especially their opening ceremony. The first thing they did was recite the Pledge of Allegiance, which I haven't had the good fortune to do for quite a while. Then, a prayer for our servicemen and veterans, and finally, the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. I met a lot of lovely ladies who do good work with local schools and veterans groups. Can't wait to complete the application process and become a full-fledged member!!
