Society Saturday - Columbus Day in Washington DC

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the 523 anniversary of Columbus' "discovery" of the new world.  The National Society Children of the American Colonists, along with several other hereditary and patriotic societies took part in the annual ceremony at Columbus Circle in Washington DC.  

There were representatives from Spain, Italy, and the Bahamas who spoke.  The national winner of the DAR Christopher Columbus essay read his essay, then we all processed with our wreaths.

I was joined by the National 2nd Vice President as we carried our wreath to the front of the stage.  The wreath was a little top heavy, and attracted bees, but we managed a dignified walk in spite of it.
