Our Victorian Tea & Open House occurs the first Sunday of December annually. This has become a tradition with the chapter.
(1) To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence by the acquisition and protection of historical spots, and the erection of monuments; by the encouragement of historical research in relationship to the Revolution and the publication of its results; by the preservation of documents and relics, and of the individual services of Revolutionary Soldiers and Patriots, and by the promotion of celebrations of all patriotic anniversaries.
(2) To carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people, "to promote, as an object of primary importance institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge," thus developing an enlightened public opinion, and affording to the young and old such advantages as shall develop in them the largest capacity for performing the duties of American citizens.
(3) To cherish, maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country and to aid in securing for mankind all blessings of liberty.
Open house on dates shown on
Meetings & Events page.
Please be aware that we have moved our October meeting (due to Restoration work) to The Carnegie Center and we have CHANGED the time to 1:00 p.m. due to the fact that we had to move it to the Carnegie and they are not open at night. We did not change the date. It will be October 16 as the yearbook states. Our program is going to be honoring our Vietnam Era veterans and we have invited several and some of them will talk about their respective service. You may invite any quests as usual and especially any veterans you know. Just let Kate know if any veterans are coming as she has a little gift prepared for all veterans.
Also, we are preparing a Southern Indiana basket to raffle off. It currently has three different jams from Hubers, a beautiful handmade wooden trivet from Bob Dreher and 2 wine glasses from Simmons Winery. We need some more items made in Southern Indiana to include in the basket. I already have the basket.
We have several new prospective members to vote on so please come on October 16 at 1:00 p.m. to the Carnegie Center and join us for our October meeting.
Any questions, give me a call.
