Regent's Message

Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their families. I enjoyed Christmas Eve and Christmas day with both sides of my family. It was a much needed break to take the time to reflect on the many blessings in my life.

It was so wonderful to see so many of our Ten O'clock Line Daughters at December's chapter meeting. Thank you to Martha Lou for your great Conservation committee report! It's so nice to hear about the efforts in our state to maintain our green spaces. Your enthusiasm and passion for conservation is truly an inspiration. Thank you also goes to Angie for her great ideas for headstone project fundraisers.

It's that time of year again - I need your volunteer hours and any recycling and conservation info. I have included a form at the bottom of this newsletter that you can use to respond. Please take a few moments to complete this information. If you'd rather email the data to me, please send it to Having everyone report their activities allows us to really brag about our accomplishments!

Everyone stay warm and safe!

Many Blessings,


Our Amazing Daughters

Thank you for braving the roads to brighten the day of our military personnel!

Thank you again for your support of our veterans!
