Programs for our chapter meetings have included: presentations on The Battle of King's Mountain, the DAR schools, and beekeeping. We have enjoyed special speakers from the Birmingham Wildlife Foundation, the Lions Club, and the American Legion. We have also been honored to have DAR Good Citizens and Scholarship winners, ovarian cancer survivors, and a female member of the United States Military attend and share their stories with us.
In addition to these outstanding programs, we have been treated by chapter members to a personal demonstration on natural fibers and the art of spinning, shared family heirlooms and treasures at “Show and Tell,” and learned about the history of DAR and the women who founded it.
This year, we are looking forward to programs given by Alabama Society Daughters of the American Revolution (ASDAR) state officers, a Purple Heart recipient, an ASDAR committee chair and DAR Museum Docent, and a WWII WAVE.
Josiah Brunson Chapter NSDAR enjoys a closed Facebook page and members share information on the Alabama Society DAR page. We stay in touch with members through chapter email and newsletters from the chapter regent.
Trussville and St. Clair County newspapers have printed events and programs given by our chapter. We are grateful for their support.
There were articles printed in both papers informing the communities of the two grave marking ceremonies before the events; and afterward, there were articles printed describing the events, including photographs. Coverage was also provided for the four separate presentations to local schools by our chapter of Alabama Roots Biography Series books.
Other articles in a Trussville newspaper included our DAR Good Citizens Scholarship winner, donations to a local senior citizen center, and Constitution Week presentations made by some of our members at two local libraries.
