Society Saturday - Happy Birthday Isle a la Cache

Our Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter turned 2 today.  Isle a la Cache chapter had its organizing meeting in November 2010 with 12 members.  Today we have 37 members with four more applications waiting for approval. 

Two brand new members were present and were welcomed and given Gift Bags of DAR goodies.

Some of our projects during those 2 years are:
  • Honoring a Junior ROTC cadet at Romeoville High School
  • Sponsoring DAR Good Citizens at Romeoville and Bolingbrook High Schools
  • Decorating a Patriotic Christmas Tree at Rialto Theater in Joliet to aid in its preservation
  • Donating to the DAR-sponsored schools
  • Donating time and money to "Feed My Starving Children"
  • Placing wreaths at Abraham Lincoln Cemetery for Wreaths Across America
  • Welcoming home WWII veterans from Honor Flight
  • Working closely with the Children of the American Revolution
We had a lovely luncheon at Francesca's in Bolingbrook to celebrate these accomplishments.
