Meetings

Each regular meeting is usually held on the first Saturday of the month with few exceptions while working around holidays, and the occasional weeknights meetings.  We encourage all members to bring a guest to every meeting, these guests may be members that need assistance in getting to meetings, friends, colleagues or family members.  The purpose is to educate the public about our service-driven National Society and for us to learn of ways to help within our communities better.

We often include very interesting programs, some of our past programs have included conservation, historic preservation, "Boosting our Chapter Presence on Social Media", Genealogy/DNA Discovery, "Herstory", "Preserving Our Stories", "Romance of the Handkerchief", D-Day Anniversary, Poppy Party making activity for the Veteran Center, women's issues, and local history museum tours. We also have wonderful guest speakers.

Our meetings include scripture and prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, The American's Creed, and presentation of the program.

 

There is a complimentary refreshments break/social time; made possible by our volunteer hostesses which alternate for every meeting.  Enjoy an ever-changing selection of hot and cold beverages, fresh fruits, pastries, cookies some of which are homemade by our members, and on occasion even candies.

 

The business portion of our meetings consist of the President General’s Message, National Defense Report, approval of prior meeting's minutes, Reports of Officers, Reports of Committees and new any new business to discuss.
