Special Events and Activities
Our Chapter activities include these projects and many, many more!
Members of our chapter regularly visit the Staunton VA Clinic to deliver items donated by our chapter members for the use of our Veterans. The clinic gives us a prioritized list of monthly food, toiletry, and clothing needs and we do our best to provide for them. Early each month, we deliver the goods, stock the shelves, and thank the veterans at the Clinic.
Fauquier Court House Chapter members are regularly delivering donations to Fauquier FISH during the pandemic, as well as collecting hundreds of dollars in monetary donations to help our neighbors in need. We participate in the packing of Snow Day Kits and Weekend Power Packs that are delivered to local schools. These kits contain food that is sent home with children who have been identified as at risk of hunger. The Snow Day and Weekend Power Packs include oatmeal, fruit cup, mac and cheese, granola bar, crackers and cheese, and a small candy bar.
Our Chapter also "adopts" local children through FISH to provide fully stocked Back to School Backpacks each school year. Per Erin Smith, FISH Coordinator, our donations enabled us to make an additional 50 snow day kits possible in one day and provide 16 elementary school students with their essential supplies.
Fauquier Court House Chapter,
along with the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter, SAR, hosted its
annual Genealogy Workshop. This year saw a record number of attendees.
Twenty-six Fauquier Court House Daughters volunteered with setup,
breakfast snacks, lunch and clean-up. There were many classes offered. Our keynote speaker was Joe Dooley, Past President General, National Society Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR). His program on “Who Were the Parents of Elizabeth Terhune?” was very informative and we all learned valuable information.
Also provided at the workshop was an “Ask a Genie” table where folks could sit down with one of our volunteers to discuss any research problems they might be having.
Our next Genealogy Workshop is going virtual! It will be held in November 2020 -
