Nay-osh-ing Chapter, Plover, Daughters of the American Revolution met recently for their Christmas Meeting at Shooters.
This year our Christmas Meeting was presented by Marjorie Kietlinski, who is a talented pianist and leader. We all love singing Christmas Carols. She explained the history of some and others were old favorites. Her assistant, husband Michael Kietlinski, played the bells as we all sang Jingle Bells. She led us in a variety of songs with many religious hymns that are so familiar to all of us. We were also treated to beautiful, delicious Cookies made by Shannon Moore.
Doris Dahlke, Vice Regent, read a Certificate of Appreciation presented to Nay-osh-ing Chapter from Trees From Home, Inc., In recognition of supporting Military Personnel serving our Country Overseas.
She also asked that members continue to knit wool helmet liners, donate wool or funds for next year. The plan is to again send 2500 boxes to our Military. Dahlke also reported on labels sent to the DAR schools out East.
Wreaths across America held a very impressive ceremony at the Korean War Memorial. The invocation was presented by Joanne Hagen, Nay-osh-ing Chapter Chaplain and attended by several members. This project is led by Terese Barta and the Civil Air Patrol. Our Chapter was given 4 wreaths to be placed on Veterans graves.
This year Nay-osh-ing Chapter chose St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery on Patch Street and placed a wreath on WWII Veterans, Irving Korth, Robert Pavlik, Otto Zamzow and Korean War Veteran Robert Herr.
