Transcript of Arkansas State Society Dau ghters of the American...

  • “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

    Matthew 5:16

    Dear Arkansas Daughters,

    Arkansas made the history books this February with record snowfalls and low

    temperatures. However, your Master Questionnaires and chapter narrative reports

    show that the weather hasn't dampened your American spirit. It is exciting to see the

    ways in which your chapters have supported the objectives of our National Society

    and contributed to your communities. You ladies are awesome!

    Our State Conference Committee from Quapaw District (Junelle Mongno Chair) is

    working diligently to make preparations for our State Conference March 17 -

    19. You will find information within this newsletter regarding registration. Our own President General, Merry

    Ann Wright, will be our honored guest this year and our Keynote Speaker for Opening Night on Thursday,

    March 17. Beverly Pryzbylski, the National Chairman for the Genealogical Records Committee, will be

    another honored guest. She will be the speaker at the Chapter Regents Club meeting on Thursday evening.

    We have some new events at State Conference this year. The Junior Membership Committee is having a dinner

    on Thursday evening at 5:30. It is not only for Junior Members, anyone can attend. So if you are not registered

    for another activity at that time, please send in your registration from. Morgan Lake, the National Chairman of

    the Junior Membership Committee, will be one of our honored guests and the speaker at this event.

    Another new event at State Conference this year is not listed in the Schedule of Events. It is a performance by

    the Golden Girls (no registration is required). Who are the Golden Girls? They are a group of members who will

    be entertaining us at an after hours performance on Thursday evening--after the Opening Night program

    and the reception line. Feel free to change into more comfortable clothes and come back down to Salon D. This

    State Regent’s Message

  • State Regent’s Project

    Our State Regent’s Project is to set up a centrally located Records Storage facility. The search is on for a

    secure, clean place to store the records of the state and all the chapters. We need to get our archives out of

    someone’s attic, basement, or garage!

    We will be selling monogrammed shirts and tote bags to benefit this project.

    We have a polyvinyl tote (which is machine washable and dryable), a cotton

    gusset bag, and a boater tote bag. For the shirts, we have denim and

    stonewashed denim short-sleeved shirts. We have a long sleeved twill shirt, an

    ivory camp shirt and a cotton knit shirt. We have several different monograms

    for the shirts and totes.

    If you order now, the items can be mailed ($5 for each item) or they can be

    picked up at State Conference in March. Please allow two-weeks for the turn-

    around on mail orders.
