Here are some photos from our community efforts after receiving support through the coronavirus relief fund through the CARES Act. We are so happy to be able to help distribute school supplies for the keiki, PPE such as soap, masks, register voters and distribute health and wellness information at Mayor Wright Housing! 😄

DAR Celebrates “Constitution Week” Sept. 17-23 every year. Here are ways to do that—Read about the Constitution. Better yet, re-read our Constitution this coming week. ❤️. The “Student Constitution” book by FLAG in the attached picture was recommended to me a couple of years ago by one of my Aloha Chapter DAR sisters, and I have purchased and given several away. Also, here is an activity you may want to pass on that is about “The U.S. Constitution.” It is taken from a textbook used in one of the classes I taught for English language learners at the intermediate level. (Land, People, Nation: A History of the United States Beginnings to 1877, 2nd Edition, Pearson Education, 2005, pp. 76-79).

LITERACY NEWS: TODAY IS “NATIONAL READ A BOOK DAY”!

National Read A Book Day is observed annually on September 6th. On August 9th, we all celebrated National Book Lovers Day. While these bookish days may seem similar, National Read a Book Day invites us ALL to grab a book we might enjoy and spend the day reading.

Don’t keep it to yourself. Share the experience! Read aloud either to children or to grandparents. Read to your pets or to your stuffed animals and plants.

How about reading to our minis?
https://www.tenderlittlehearts.org/read-to-a-mini.html

Reading improves memory and concentration as well as reduces stress. Older adults who spend time reading show a slower cognitive decline and tend to participate in more mentally stimulating activities over their lifetime. Books are an inexpensive entertainment, educational tool and time machine too! #ReadABookDay

September 3, 1783, the Treaty of Paris was signed and it officially ended the Revolutionary War.
Signed nearly two years after the Battle of Yorktown, The U.S. sent three representatives to Paris, France to negotiate the treaty: Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and John Jay. The treaty was later ratified January 14, 1784 by the Continental Congress.

Every summer, the DAR Museum hosts a turn-of-the-century World’s Fair complete with food, music and guests from local embassies and cultural centers.

Together, we give museum visitors a taste of what it was like to attend a World’s Fair in 1893 Chicago or 1904 St. Louis.

This event traditionally attracts approximately 1,000 visitors, who can admire the beauty of the DAR’s Memorial Continental Hall while learning about objects relating to the World’s Fair in the DAR Museum’s collection. Activities and games of the period, plus a peek into the art, music and cuisine from cultures around the world, complete the experience.

This year, we are bringing this event to you at home! Rather than cancel the DAR Museum’s World Fair due to ongoing restrictions in the District of Columbia related to the pandemic, we have partnered with global organizations and individuals to present a variety of activities, interviews and demonstrations spread over three days. This will give participants the chance to experience the World’s Fair at the DAR Museum from anywhere and everywhere! Some of the material is especially made for students, while other components will be enjoyed more by adults.
