Several members of the Grand Canyon Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution attended the NSDAR annual conference in Washington, D.C. June 18-24 to prepare for the upcoming year and to reflect on the outstanding work  that has been done across the nation and worldwide.

The 185,000-member service organization has three main objectives: promoting patrotism, preserving  American history and securing America’s future with better education for children.

Included in the group attending from the Scottsdale chapter were Terri Mott, honorary state regent 2016-18, and Stephanie Troth, vice president general.  Both ladies are Grand Canyon Chapter honorary regents.

Grand Canyon member Jessie Wicks, Outstanding Arizona Junior, was a finalist in the NSDAR  annual  contest and was introduced on stage at the Continental Congress. Marylou Fellman was installed as Arizona State Regent 2018-20.

Other chapter members attending included  Kandy Wagenbach, Suzanne Young, Kathy Shields, Susan Von Hellens, Betty Heenan, Ann Curry, Karen Andrews, Diana Ranby and Morgan Elliott.
