The speaker for the November DAR Clarion County chapter meeting was the ever delightful Mary Wilson who served in the US Navy and spoke of her various assignments throughout the world - Chicago, Naples in Italy, London, Corpus Christi, and Boston.
Mary emphasized it was a fascinating career of learning, connecting, and communicating. Pictured above, with Mary Wilson (right) is Nancy Keen, Regent.
Karen Dick has the distinction of being admitted as the 100th member of the current membership of the Clarion County DAR chapter. The local DAR chapter was organized on February 24, 1920 with thirty-nine charter members. The Chapter was then chartered on April 22, 1920 and recently celebrated their 100th year anniversary. Pictured with Karen Dick (right) is Lee Ellsworth, Registrar. The group meets the second Wednesday of the month, eight months of the year and strives to serve God, Home, and Country through various DAR projects and programs in the community.
