The David Hudson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will open its 2016-2017 program season with a new slate of officers. Jane R. Plank, Regent; Mialie T. Szymanski, First Vice Regent; and Katy Kadlec-Doran, Vice Regent, along with the rest of the new executive board, took the oath of office in May at the Country Club of Hudson with OSDAR NE District Director Mary Chase presiding.

Western Reserve Academy hosted the first meeting of the season on Sept. 10 hearing from Thomas Vince, area historian and archivist for WRA. He spoke about Hudson women who were educational pioneers.

To commemorate the upcoming DAR Day of Service, one of the main activities this fall planned by the David Hudson Chapter is a food drive on Oct. 15 at the Acme Fresh Market. Donations collected that day will benefit the Hudson Food Pantry.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American History, and support better education for our nation's children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With 178,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world's largest and most active service organizations.
