American Heritage

Heritage Rose Gown

Members of Fort Graham Chapter were delighted to learn about various Christmas traditions in vogue during colonial times. Sharon Allen and Jane Doclar, members of the Captain Molly Corbin Chapter in Grapevine were the guest speakers at our November meeting. Each year, the period rooms in NSDAR's Headquarters in Washington, D.C. are decorated for Christmas in the style common to that area of the country and time period. Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Doclar used photographs of these rooms to explain the traditions and customs that served as the basis for modern Christmas celebrations.

Since the chapter's formation, members of the Fort Graham Chapter have participated the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution American Heritage Contest.

In 2009, current Regent Madeleine Lively was honored to receive second in the nation for her entry of a crocheted christening gown she created for her granddaughter.

In 2010, Toni Wengler submitted a patriotic photo of the husband and grandson of a chapter member taken at the chapter's Constitution Week Assembly at Whitney High School.

In 2011, Madeleine Lively submitted a multimedia collage, Toni Wengler submitted a patriotic oil painting titled "Danny", and Susan Johnston won first place in state and second place in regional with her historic costume entry.

Gwyn Holden serves as chair of the American Heritage Committee for the Fort Graham Chapter.
