DAR meeting set for Saturday


The Matilda Polk Campbell chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, will hold its monthly meeting at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at Open Hearts United Methodist Church in Bolivar.

Programs this year focus on women, women’s history and women’s issues. This month, a representative from House of Hope will share a presentation on human trafficking.

Ladies have the opportunity to participate in several service projects through the organization. Hygiene and personal care items are being collected to be packed in purses and given to women entering domestic violence shelters. Since the beginning of this chapter year, more than 25 purses have been packed and given to House of Hope for women.

“Grow Appalachia” is a program to help needy families in eastern Kentucky have an adequate supply of healthy foods. Packets of garden seeds are being collected by Daughters in Missouri and will be sent to Hindman Settlement School, a DAR-supported school in Kentucky. Seeds will be collected at both the March and April meetings.

“Project Patriot” supports deployed service personnel. Snack items and personal care items are being collected to be sent to the son of one of Matilda’s Daughters, who is serving on a ship in northern Europe.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a patriotic service organization for women who can trace their lineage to a Revolutionary Patriot, who is someone who provided material benefit to the Revolutionary cause. Daughters are passionate about community service, preserving history, educating children, as well as honoring and supporting those who serve our nation.

All meetings are free and open to the public.
