Lone Tree DAR hears about Civil Rights milestone

Seven members of the Lone Tree Chapter DAR met on April 28, 2014 at the Greensburg home of Stephanie McDaniel. Members enjoyed a delicious lemon cake with mandarin oranges, pineapple and whip cream with fresh strawberries on the side. Nuts, chocolates, coffee, tea and water were also served by the committee of Barbara Barnett and Stephanie McDaniel.

The meeting was called to order by Regent Linda Volk and opened with the DAR Ritual, Pledge of Allegiance, American Creed and the singing of the National Anthem.

Secretaries’ report was given by Stephanie McDaniel. Treasurer’s report was given by Lois Laskowski. Both were approved.

Linda Volk gave the National Defense. Linda also gave the President General’s Message on opera singer Marian Anderson. In 1939, Marian was denied the opportunity to perform in the DAR Constitution Hall because of her race. After performing a historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to a crowd of 75,000 people, the DAR recognized the need for change and Marian sang at Constitution Hall on a number of occasions. Ms. Anderson’s legendary concert will always be remembered as a milestone in the Civil Rights movement. This brought attention to the many voices urging our nation to overcome prejudice and intolerance, not only in DAR but in all of America. In January 2005 the U.S. Post Office unveiled a commemorative U.S. postage stamp honoring the opera and concert star in Washington, D.C.

On April 12, 2014, Marian Anderson 75th Anniversary Celebration, which was held at the DAR Constitution Hall celebrated the life and legacy of opera singer Marian Anderson, with an all-star concert hosted by the celebrated American soprano Jessye Norman and featured guest appearances from a number of artists.

Old Business – Discussion continued on investing the funds from the CD that matured in March 2014. Since we did not have a quorum to vote this matter will be discussed at the June meeting.
