Local DAR Recognizes National American Indian Heritage Month
One of the goals of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is to preserve American history. In support of that goal, on Nov. 18, 2012, Linda Olson, American Indian Committee Chair, Philadelphia Winn Chapter NSDAR, presented Philadelphia Winn NSDAR Regent Peggy Freeman a proclamation from the City of Monroe and signed by Mayor Greg Thompson declaring November National American Indian Heritage Month. The proclamation recognizes how American Indians and Indigenous people have influenced American history. It also celebrates American Indian customs and traditions as part of a rich legacy throughout the U.S.
The event took place during the Philadelphia Winn monthly meeting in Lawrenceville. If you would like to learn more about the work of today's DAR, visit www.DAR.org. If you are interested in joining the Philadelphia Winn Chapter, please email email@example.com.
