We are very honored to share the Ohio Chair State President's Project 2019-2021 with you. It will be a one of a kind Ohio chairmaker's rendering of a 17th century white oak wainscot chair. The chair will be presented this fall to the National Society in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Ohio Society in 2020. It has been delayed due to COVID, but is in the completion stage in Vermilion, Ohio, at this time. Stay tuned for updates on this beautiful piece of interactive art. The chair is hand carved with various images depicting the life of King Edward III of England. It is a one of a kind design. The pictures below are early in the process. It is now in the carving stage.

When the Summer 2021 issue of the Review is put online (under publications), please post that information on this site. I'm anxious to see it since I did not get the mailed copy. I don't know what happened to it. I have not moved so that's not the problem.
Where is the April 2022 meeting going to be?
Cross Trails donates School Supplies to fill backpacks for 32 “Lunch & Learn” Students: Total # of school supply items: 750 Total items valued at over $470 Cross Trails Chapter of Spring, TX teamed up with San Jacinto Chapter of the NSDAR to donate school supplies to fill backpacks for Klein ISD students who participated in this summer’s tutoring program called “Lunch & Learn.” Cross Trails Chapter donated items for 32 Junior High and High School students while San Jacinto donated items for the 33 Elementary school students who participated in the program. Klein ISD provided a list of specific items they wanted for each backpack. Donations were gathered and shopping was done for the best prices. The supplies were then dropped off at the school district’s office. The district filled the backpacks and gave them to the students. The students were thrilled and thankful to receive their backpacks. “Lunch & Learn is a 501c-3 non profit organization formed in 2010. It is a two-week summer program that serves low-income students within Klein ISD. Its mission is to ‘instill a passion to learn, build trusting relationships in the community, and broaden students’ awareness of various career opportunities and the steps needed to pursue a higher education.’ Lunch & Learn offers elementary through high school students the opportunity to maintain their academics, participate in educational presentations, go on career-oriented field trips, and learn more about the community they live in. Lunch is provided each day, and at the end of the session, students are given new backpacks and school supplies for the coming year. All of this is provided at no cost. Lunch and Learn operates entirely on donations and with the generous support of the community and volunteers.”

I really need someone to contact me on the procedures for transferring a member from one chapter to another. Evidently, I'm supposed to use a Membership Change Form of which I cannot locate anywhere on the national website.🙏
Hi ladies, I need to know who the current Organizing Secretary General and Parliamentarian are for 2021-2023 are. Thanks!

Is there a brochure (maybe a trifold) for our National Society? We want to include a brochure with the books we are donating to some local schools. I looked on the website, but couldn't find anything. Maybe I missed it....
The Methuen, MA Historical Society has a project to mark the graves of our soldiers from the Revolutionary War. We would like to include the Colonial or French and Indian War veterans. Are you aware of any grave markers we could purchase for these graves? Thank you for your time.
