HISTORY OF THE FLORIDA KEYS CHAPTER
From February of 1982, Mrs. "K" Wilkinson worked diligently and relentlessly to get a DAR chapter established in the Florida Keys. As organizing regent, she saw her work come to fruition in October of 1983. The chapter started with 13 organizing members, grew to 18 charter members, and won an award at Continental Congress for greatest growth in membership the following spring. The Florida Keys Chapter has continued to grow to its present membership.
Our programs always fulfill the requirements stipulated by the Chapter Achievement Award. Members participate in sponsoring the DAR Good Citizen contest and the DAR American History Essay Contest. The chapter has representatives attending Florida State Society DAR Fall Forum, State Conference, and Continental Congress in Washington D.C. Each year we do something for veteran patients, learn about and participate in conservation projects, and, in general, keep abreast of the needs of our community. The members travel up and down the keys, sometimes as much as 100 miles one way, to attend meetings.
Chapter members are learning as they go along and are extremely proud of each year's progress.
We look forward to winning more awards and participating in more chapter projects in the future. Contact us for a
meeting reservation today.
We invite all visiting Daughters and prospective members to contact us for reservations to our next meeting. Come and enjoy the spirit of the Keys!
