As part of our holiday festivities, we donated patriotic ornaments to decorate a tree for the Delaware Valley Veterans Home.
In February 2013, we delivered a large sheet cake decorated as an American flag to the Delaware Valley Veterans Home for its Super Bowl party.
Also in February, we took a bus trip to the DAR headquarters in Washington D.C. Members enjoyed access to the DAR library for genealogical research and the exhibit "Fashioning the New Woman," featuring attire, accessories and memorabilia of women from 1890 through 1918.
The program for the March meeting was "A Woman's Life During the Philadelphia Occupation, Sept. 26, 1777 to June 18, 1778," presented by Anita Fleck, a reenactor with the 5th Pennsylvania Regiment.
