The President of the National Society Daughters of American Colonists (DAC), Carole L. Rambo Holt installed Trumbull resident Christy A. Hendrie as State Regent, Jolene Mullen, State Vice Regent and Carol Bauby, State Registrar of the CT State Society Daughters of the American Colonists during their May meeting at the Griswold Inn, Essex, CT.  The CT State Society Daughters of the American Colonists was organized in Hartford, CT on Dec 10, 1921 eight months after the National Society was incorporated in Washington, DC. The CT State Society has members throughout the State from Trumbull, Shelton, Danbury, Fairfield, Harwinton, Woodbury and Clinton.

Holt presented a very interesting program on her President’s Project to financially support the building of an outdoor learning pavilion named Mistress Margaret Brent Pavilion at Historic St. Mary’s City Museum, Maryland, an archaeological and living history museum of Maryland’s first colony and capital.
