Ladies, make sure you see the recent “American Spirit Magazine.” Then check out the information on this summer’s Continental Congress in the accompanying DAR Newsletter Supplement! Also, in the “With the Chapters” section is a submission telling about the Aloha Chapter’s annual donation drive for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign in November 2020. Thank you Vice Regent Christine Domhoff for spearheading that wonderful event for children in need and making it work during the COVID restrictions. Well done!

Received this lovely bracelet today from DAR for supporting the restoration of our magnificent NSDAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. The “Window” charm represents the classic Main Door openings that allow visitors to glimpse into the Hall. The “Rosette Medallion” charm replicates the lovely plaster medallions featured above the tier seating. The “Rise and Shine for America Sun” charm symbolizes the energy of the undertaking to restore the crown jewel of our DAR headquarters. The red “Decorative Bead” denotes the shared personal commitment of participating DAR members—the lifeblood of this major renovation project. The “Star” charm celebrates the Hall’s iconic overhead lay light. When complete, the lay light will restore spectacular lighting effects so guests will once again enjoy concerts under the stars. Let us Rise and Shine together!

98th HAWAII NSDAR STATE CONFERENCE (March 6, 2021) via Zoom. The first time we have done a virtual State Conference. We did it—great teamwork as we all socialized, worked our way through the technology, and presented our annual reports virtually from our home bases. We even had a video greeting from the President General! And what a wonderful program this year with Janna as our fabulous speaker. Mahalo again to Rosetta Bowen Hiranaga and our host Haleakala Chapter for your hard work. And also to State Regent Jane Mann, State Vice-Regent Julene Ignacio, and State Secretary Laura Anne Busick Ingenluyff. Well done!

For the fifth United States Presidential Inauguration in a row, the Inaugural Committee has requested the use of the historic DAR eagle lectern. During the four previous Inaugurations the lectern was used during the Inaugural Luncheon held in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol immediately following the oath of office ceremony.
The lectern was to be used again this year for the luncheon but due to COVID restrictions the luncheon was recently canceled after the DAR lectern had already been borrowed from DAR Headquarters. We hope the Inaugural Committee will be able to use the lectern in another capacity – keep your eye out if you see it and let us know!

Learn more about the DAR eagle lectern here: https://blog.dar.org/dar-eagle-lectern-loaned-inaugural-committee

The DAR is proud to be a nonpartisan, nonpolitical organization. We celebrate our long-standing relationship with the nonpartisan Inaugural Committee and their desire to use our historic eagle lectern over many years.
**Admins of the DAR National Headquarters page will be deleting all comments on this post to keep the focus on the history of the lectern.

Anyone visiting the chapter in the next few days should not be alarmed by the sight of a large hard mushroom encircling the new library placard. It will be reduced in a few days- it needs to set. - see you all on the 22nd !
