On Tuesday, February 25th, our State Regent Melodye Brown visited local chapters attending a luncheon hosted by the Matthew Talbot DAR chapter in Monroe, Georgia. DAR Chapters John Clarke, Matthew Talbot, Apalachee and Henry Walton attended the event. Ms. Brown spoke about the three mission areas of her administration, following the themes “honoring patriots of the past, supporting patriots of the present, and preparing patriots of the future.”
In her presentation, Ms. Brown highlighted the Georgia DAR initiative honoring patriots of the past, as progress continues on the historic restoration of Meadow Garden, the home of George Walton who signed the United States Declaration of Independence as a representative of Georgia.
Preparing patriots of the future, Georgia DAR supports three Gate of Opportunity Scholarships to financially-eligible students at Berry College in Rome, Georgia.
Finally, our state regent remarked on our greatest successes as chapters throughout Georgia supporting patriots of the present. With great love and patriotism, chapters have provided free coffee to veterans at local coffee shops, stood in lieu of family at unaccompanied veteran burials, prepared care packages for deployed service men and women and renewed the focus on the plight of homeless veterans.
