On this New Year’s Eve, we look back on your wonderful support of the Miss Eliza project and the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund and we couldn’t be more grateful. We are proud to represent the SCDAR and are so looking forward to Miss Eliza’s launch at CC in 2018. On behalf of our National Vice Chair Junior Doll, Linda Hawkins and each of us on Miss Eliza’s team, thank you and Happy New Year! (Fun fact: Auld Lang Syne was written by Robert Burns in 1788)
I am Today’s DAR. Service is given to Colorado Veterans through Homes For Our Troops, Remembering The Brave, Gold Star Families and to Veteran Burial Services at Ft. Logan National Cemetery Denver. I love being a Daughter of The American Revolution because of this service. I have an American Heart. 🇺🇸 #nsdar#service#americanwoman
Notice the sash blowing in the wind? Despite that yesterday was one of those great events, meaningful and fun! Volunteers placed 9200 wreaths and it was nice to visit with @senblumenthal @wreathsacross #NSDAR Thanks, Wadsworth Chapter!
At the annual December meeting of the Eliza Lucas Pinckney Chapter in Charleston, South Carolina, members were treated to a very special display featuring MISS ELIZA, South Carolina's NSDAR Junior Doll 2018.
The dolls were dressed in Miss Eliza's Museum Collection. Each gown was inspired by an historic gown that was either owned by Eliza Lucas Pinckney or a member of her immediate family.
SCDAR members have worked tirelessly in creating this special project to benefit the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund and can proudly say that every chapter in South Carolina has participated!
Thank you to Lori Bailey, CEO of Tamassee, for attending the Philadelphia Winn Chapter Tamassee Christmas Party. We were so happy to be able to provide Christmas presents for three cottages of children. #merrychristmas#nsdar#tamasseedarschool
What a festive December meeting today! Our amazing Juniors taught us about Christmas traditions around the world, and we had a lovely lunch with foods from all over the globe 🎄🗺🇺🇸 #JohnAbston#nsdar#mckinneytx
What a wonderful ride we have had since introducing Miss Eliza at Continental Congress in June!
We have had the most fun highlighting the talents and dedication of SCDAR daughters and their contributions to the Miss Eliza project in support of the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund. Thank you, ladies.
I visited my DAR friend today while she added a pin to her ribbon. I always love looking at these beautiful pins because they represent Patriotism and service rendered to the DAR and to America by a direct female descendant of a Revolutionary War Patriot. The Daughters of the American Revolution have an amazing research library and extensive historical record archive in their beautiful headquarters building near the Washington Monument and the White House. It's definitely worth a visit, especially if you have a daughter in your family. The contributions of women to the American Revolution are showcased, and it is a fascinating place to see. #NSDAR#DAR#SAR#NSSAR

How your support of the Miss Eliza National Junior Doll 2018 Project helps the DAR Schools... All proceeds from the Miss Eliza National Junior Doll Project go to the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund, which was started in 1938 to assist Junior Members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution with their many projects to raise funds for the DAR Schools. The fund was named in memory of Helen Pouch, who was the daughter of Helena R. Pouch, the first national chair of the Junior Membership Committee in 1937 and who also served as President General from 1941-1944.
The fund finances projects chosen by the Junior Membership Committee with prior approval of the Executive Committee. In the past the Juniors have provided scholarships, medical aid, and general assistance to the DAR schools.Through the years, this fund has provided more than two million dollars in financial assistance for our schools. Meeting this commitment is a combined effort by Juniors through their fundraising projects and by individuals who make donations to the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund.
The National Junior Doll is one of the major fund-raising projects through which the Juniors meet their financial goals to assist the DAR Schools. (Image: Helena R. Pouch, the first national chair of the Junior Membership Committee in 1937 who also served as President General from 1941-1944)

While Chaplain Jeanine and her mother Karen took their favorite veteran, FODAR and HODAR, Cliff out to lunch they noticed this table set for one at Red Robin. The manager said every Red Robin will have a table set for one this weekend. Way to go @redrobinburgers!
