The Illinois DAR tried a different approach this year. Instead of making 4 one-day stops around the state, DAR days was split into 2 two-day weekends - one in central Illinois, the other in southern Illinois. Instead of the usual parade of chairmen with their 2 minutes or less presentations, there were several workshops of various interest to different officers - there was something for Regents, Registrars, Treasurers, and Secretaries, to name a few.
Our State Regent's theme is "Be Yourself, Be Together, Be DAR" and her symbol is the bee. Some of the chairmen took this to the extreme.
At night we had a presentation on Grave Witching. It was interesting, but I'm not sure I have any unmarked graves to find.
