I had just returned to Nashville from Japan, where my husband was serving as an Air Force Officer, when my sister joined DAR.  She asked me if I would like to join the DAR and I said, “Sure!!”  (Now all you Genies are going to say "Oh, the Horrors" when I tell you that I joined DAR on a short form.  All that I had to provide was my birth certificate, my marriage license and my sister’s National...

What am I doing sitting in the chair of the Corresponding Secretary General of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution?  For someone who never imagined she would be a Chapter Regent, it is pretty amazing to have been elected, thirty years after joining, as the State Regent of Georgia and three years later, to a National Executive Officer position.  Having worked with the DAR...

What an honor it is to be part of the Dillon Administration leadership team, and to be Moving Forward in Service to America with you! Joining the DAR has been a blessing for me beyond measure.  I found the DAR after I lost my mother to breast cancer at a young age.  Her grandmother had been a member, and I decided to renew the family connection.   My husband Thad and I moved back to my hometown...

Psalm 100: 5 5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Members often ask what path pointed me to DAR. The answer is simple – family!  My maternal grandmother wanted me to find friends when I moved to the big city.  At the age of 67, she joined the Peter Early Chapter in Blakely, Georgia so that I could join the Lady...

How exciting to join with you in moving forward in service to America! It is a thrill for me to support Mrs. Dillon as an Executive Officer of our National Society. The primary responsibility of the First Vice President General is to revise the DAR Handbook and National Bylaws as rulings and policies are updated. Following each meeting of the National Board of Management, any revisions in...

I hope the new leadership of the Dillon Administration Executive Officers, National Board of Management and National Committee Chairs will help bring new energy and new ideas as we continue the important work that DAR members have carried out for the past 125 years. During the first National Board of Management Meeting of the Dillon Administration on June 19, the...

After an exciting and busy 125th Continental Congress, your newly installed executive officers took little time off before beginning our Executive Committee meetings at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, June 20, the very next day after the Installation Ceremony. We jumped right into informal discussions and formal reports and had lots of great dialog on plans for the future. We toured the DAR Headquarters...

It was an honor to be installed as your new President General this morning. I would like to introduce myself and hope to meet as many of you as I can in these next three years during my term in office.  The Dillon Executives installed with me join in expressing our sincere appreciation for the confidence you have placed in us, and we look forward to working with you to promote Historic...

Last night during our National Defense Night Ceremony we learned that DAR now holds the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM title for “Most letters to military personnel collected in one month” with a total number of 100,904 cards! Congratulations to all DAR members and friends who contributed to the record! Last evening we were also honored to recognize the USO for its outstanding 75 years...

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves at last evening’s Celebrate America Night! It was fun to walk around and explore all that was going on and interact with so many of you. I also hope everyone is excited about our DNA group and how it may be able to assist in your family research! You won’t want to miss today’s afternoon business session where we will hear more from Mr. Greenspan about a new...
