TELL CITY – The Lafayette Spring Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently hosted one of two Indiana DAR’s Southern District meetings at St. Paul Catholic Church and Ministry Center.

The Lafayette Spring Chapter was chartered in Cannelton in 1926 and its members hail from Perry and its surrounding counties in Indiana and Kentucky.
Tell City Mayor Barbara Ewing welcomed the 92 ladies who attended from all over southern Indiana representing 10 DAR chapters. State Regent Martha Barnhart from Churubusco and other state officers and chairwomen had traveled the state during the week to attend five other district meetings hosted by other DAR chapters.
Members attended workshops in the morning led by state officers and heard from state chairwomen about the work of the DAR on national and state levels.
A lunch was provided by Carriage Inn before the members returned to their meeting to hear the chapter reports.
Each member attending received a goody bag donated by Celebrations filled with items from Fifth Third, Old National, German American Banks, Blue Heron Winery, Oakwood Health Campus, Perry County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Perry County Chamber of Commerce and Tell City High School Graphic Arts Department.
Door prizes were provided by Blue Heron Winery and Lafayette Spring Chapter members.
Lafayette Spring members received many compliments on the meal, facilities, decorations, gifts, charming downtown and the visit by a local dignitary.
The Daughters of the American Revolution is a nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history and securing America’s future through better education.
The DAR welcomes any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution. For more information about Lafayette Spring Chapter, contact Regent Patsy Alvey at 547-3629.
