I woke up at 5 this morning. Hubby was up getting ready to go pheasant hunting with his brother at Warriorsmark. He was making so much noise I couldn't sleep so I got up. He went to McDonald's to pick up some breakfast for the trip and I asked for a biscuit and Diet Coke.
I looked at emails and then websites and decided to work on updating our next year's DAR chapter program book and sort of got sidetracked into filling out VIS forms online for various chapter members who I've asked to do work.
I'm the regent for the Braddock Trail Chapter NSDAR. Our annual fundraising event is going on this week and next. We host the annual Festival of Lights which goes to cover repairs on the 1886 Victorian mansion we own which was built by Samuel Warden.
We received 1st place in the American Heritage Cultural Events contest sponsored by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. To promote the theme, Hospitality through the Ages, Braddock Trail members decorated the Warden Mansion for the 2007 Festival to reflect the hospitality and traditions of a Christmas in Colonial Williamsburg. The pineapple, the symbol of Linda Gist Calvin, President General of the National Society, was prominently displayed throughout the house. Friday night we had a lot of guests touring the house and viewing the trees. This year's theme is Christmas Around the World.
