Chapter News and Events
Our meeting was Saturday, March 19th, 2016. We had a great meeting at the Herndon Fortnightly Library. More information on the business covered below. Our program was an informal discussion on our experiences researching our ancestors. Members and visitors shared their stories of research, history and connections. Through these discussions, we learned that many of us had an ancestor connected to George Washington. I never tire of hearing the stories of our ancestors and how we became DAR members.
I attended the Virginia State Conference in Richmond, Virginia with Vice Regent, Judy Rudek, Treasurer, Connie Branch, Chaplain, Erica Herzog and Margaret Stromberg. Erica participated in the Memorial Service with the State Chorus. Margaret was also the District V Exhibit Room Chairman. We enjoyed volunteering for a shift helping committees and members in the exhibits room. Saturday Night we celebrated chapter accomplishments. It was an honor to represent our chapter as Regent. I truly enjoy attending State Conference to learn more about DAR, see old friends and make new ones.

Belmont County Club
Our April Annual Meeting will be held at the Belmont Country Club. This is a beautiful property in Loudoun County off Route 7 before Leesburg. Before our meeting, I wanted to share its history with from its website. .
"Belmont Country Club is a place where grace and elegance are part of everyday life, where golf course vistas and tranquility define daily existence. The experience begins at the prestigious gated entry and winds past the picturesque 10th green into the heart of the community. Belmont's Manor House, located on the highest point in the area, was once part of the vast land holdings of Lord Fairfax. The Manor House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in the 1790s by Ludwell Lee, son of Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence."
