TODAY IS ANNIVERSARY OF 19th AMENDMENT BEING RATIFIED! Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest.

LITERACY MINUTE: “National Poetry Month” reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with millions of readers, students, K-12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, publishers, and poets marking poetry’s important place in our lives.” (poets.org). With April 2021 marking the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Month, our Literacy Promotion Committee is celebrating by featuring a poem written by 22-year-old Harvard graduate and first National Youth Poet Laureate—Amanda Gorman. Amanda delivered this poem at the inauguration of President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C., on January 20, 2021. Attached are the words to her poem, taken from her recently published little yellow book, “The Hill We Climb: An Inaugural Poem for the Country” (recommended for ages 14+ by Children’s Book World). You may also listen to Amanda deliver this passionate poem of hope on the following YouTUBE site:
https://youtu.be/LZ055ilIiN4
In addition, Amanda was featured earlier this year on the cover of TIME magazine, which included an article (copy attached) of her conversation with former First Lady Michelle Obama (TIME, Vol. 197, Nos. 5-6, Feb. 15/Feb. 22, 2021, pp. 74-80). Do you have a favorite poem?

04/12/2021

“Poetry has been and always will be a part of us. Events in everyday life have been recited, chanted and sung since the beginnings of language. In ballad or rap, sonnet or blues, poetry is the imaginative expression that illuminates something within each of us.” -Avis Harley

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!

Calling artists, crafters, fiber artists, writers, and musical composers! The theme for the 2021 American Heritage Contest for DAR members has just been announced! It is “Rise, and Shine Your Light on our House Beautiful.”
The theme was inspired by the restoration work being done on DAR’s historic “house,” the Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The American Heritage Committee was established to preserve traditions in the fields of art and sculpture, crafts, fiber arts, literature and drama, and musical composition.
More information on the 2021 contest will be available soon at https://www.dar.org/members/committees/national-committees/american-heritage/committee-overview

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!
