Special Events and Activities
Our Chapter activities include these projects and many, many more!
Fauquier Court House Chapter members recently delivered donations collected at our chapter meeting, and participated in the packing of Snow Day Kits that will be delivered to schools in the county. These kits contain food that can be sent home with children who have been identified as at risk of hunger in anticipation of weather related cancellations. The Snow Day Power Packs include oatmeal, fruit cup, mac and cheese, granola bar, crackers and cheese, and a small candy bar.
The Snow Day Kits are in addition to the Weekend Power Packs and Back to School Backpacks, which our chapter normally collects for at our meetings. Per Erin Smith, FISH Coordinator, our donations enabled us to make an additional 50 snow day kits, bringing the total to 650 packed snow day kits assembled that day.
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,
along with the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter, SAR, hosted its
annual Genealogy Workshop. This year saw 31 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 Yvonne Liser, State Registrar DCDAR and National Vice Chairman, Lineage Research Committee for African American Special Research. Yvonne’s program on “African-American Research Tips” 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 November 2, 2019 -
