State Regent Is Speaker For Council Oak, DAR
Kathryn Walker West, State Regent of Kansas Society Daughters of the American Revolution, was the speaker for the September 10th meeting of the Council Oak Chapter. She shared the projects for her 3 year administration. For the historical preservation project, funds were secured for new carpet and window treatment for the Registrar General’s office at the National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Mary Frisch, past state regent, serves as the Registrar General. The patriotic portion of her projects was to assist the Kansas VA hospitals with projects. The Topeka VA was gifted a side-by-side bicycle and helmets for patient rehabilitation. The Leavenworth VA had started a garden project.
Her fund raising efforts enabled raised gardens and a tool shed for the veterans to use and enjoy. Ft. Riley, McConnell air base, and Leavenworth to “send a soldier home”, when there is a need not classified as a “Red Cross Emergency” is the patriotic portion of her project. Funds for personal use and an airplane ticket are awarded after application and approval. She shared that with the renovation of the National Headquarters, the chapel layout needed revised. The Kansas chapel is being reconfigured, receiving new furniture and a new stained glass window.
