Lily of the Cahaba
Lily of the Cahaba Chapter members Shelby Bailey, Kaye Sutley and Tricia Farris visited Arlington National Cemetery during Continental Congress.
Several members of the Lily of the Cahaba Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in the nation’s capital recently.
Those attending were Alabama State Regent Connie Grund, Chapter Regent Susan Moore, Second Vice Regent Lisa Bucklin, Recording Secretary Kaye Sutley, Corresponding Secretary Linda Lopez, Registrar Shelby Bailey and Committee Chair Tricia Farris.
In her role as state regent, Grund represented Alabama at the National Board meetings and reported on Alabama State activities for 2013, including participation in Wreaths Across America at the Alabama National Veterans Cemetery and a donation of a copy of a famous portrait of Martha Washington to American Village in Montevallo.
While at Congress, the women attended the Opening Night Ceremony with keynote speaker Alexander Rose, who discussed his book, Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring. The ceremony also welcomed executives from AMC’s television show, TURN, who were presented with the DAR Media and Entertainment Award.
The Lily of the Cahaba Chapter, based in Hoover, contributed more than 4,000 of those volunteer service hours to the 4.7 million hours reported nationally.
