The Nanih Waiya Chapter, NSDAR held their first meeting of the new year 2013-2014 at Market Café on Thursday, September 26th. After enjoying a luncheon provided by the café and catching up with friends,  we were delighted to have as our September program our new State Regent Billie Breedlove.  She gave an informative talk explaining her goals for the Mississippi State DAR over the next three years and leaving the members very enthusiastic for the coming year. Also joining us as a special guest was State Registrar Shelia Fondren.

Our chapter, now close to 80 members, has grown and looks forward to another year of service to our community and our friends.  DAR is a service organization and is committed to patriotism, historical preservation and  education.  “God, Home, and Country” is not just a motto for us but the central theme of our lives, said Mrs. Breedlove.

Our next meeting will be held October 24 at Market Café at 11:30 am.  A program on women’s fashion through the years in America will be  given by Mrs. Helen Polk.  If you are interested in learning more about DAR, contact our Regent Paula Fulton (773-6783) or Registrar Janis Tabor (773-4900).  Or you may go online.
