Grand Canyon Chapter DAR holds annual meeting

Scottsdale-chartered Grand Canyon Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution held its annual business meeting April 2 at Chaparral Suites in Scottsdale.

The meeting showcased the 2015-16 service and talents of chapter officers and committee chairmen to DAR’s ideals of patriotism, education and historic preservation.

The chapter is led by nine elected officers and eight appointed positions and comprises 23 committees, according to a press release. Typically, officers and chairmen serve two-year terms, providing every member a chance to participate in chapter leadership. Advisers to the chapter include 10 active honorary regents.

The next and last chapter meeting until September is May 7. The program will be “American Art,” presented by Sherri Koopot, Master Docent at the Phoenix Art Museum. This will be Ms. Koopot’s second presentation of her popular program given at the 2015 March meeting.

Guests are welcome. For reservations contact regent Kathy Shields at 602-820-5427.
