The Kuilix Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, honored the anniversary of DAR’s founding Oct. 11, 1890, by participating in the DAR National Day of Service, an annual event in which chapters and individuals are encouraged to engage in meaningful service projects in their communities.
Kuilix members helped prepare and serve lunch, followed by cleanup at the Senior Center in Dixon, Montana, Thursday, Oct. 17. More than 20 members of the Dixon community were served breakfast for lunch with French toast, eggs and sausage.
Kuilix Chapter has held several of their monthly meetings at the Center and enjoy having lunch there afterward.
“We love having our meetings at the Center because it is central to where our members come from, and having lunch there is so convenient,” said Sandy Taylor, Acting Chapter Regent. “When deciding what we wanted to do as a chapter for the DAR National Day of Service, it was natural for us to want to serve them.”
Kuilix Chapter was formed in 2012 to accommodate members in the Valley so they would not have to travel to Missoula or Kalispell to participate in Chapter activities. Members live in St. Ignatius, Ronan, Polson, Charlo, Plains, Thompson Falls and Trout Creek.
