Ocoee Chapter NSDAR Member Hosts Colonial Dinner
Ocoee Chapter National Society DAR member Virginia Orr recently completed the NSDAR Member’s Course.
For her capstone project, she researched Colonial food sources, recipes and regional traditions to present a colonial dinner at her home. Several chapter members were invited including chapter officers and Cherokee District Director Mary Ellen Nolletti.
Upon arrival guests enjoyed lemonade and roasted nuts. Virginia began the meal with a prayer from the DAR Rituals and Missals Book. The meal consisted of four courses, including pumpkin soup, herb pie, roasted pork loin and chicken served with various root vegetables, and rice pudding. The herb pie was decorated with stars and the letters DAR.
Each course was introduced with history and preparation descriptions given by Virginia to enhance the experience of each attendee.
“The DAR Member’s Course provides an opportunity for members to learn more about DAR and how they can become active participants in DAR at all levels —chapter, state, and national. At the core of the course is a self-guided curriculum structured around a series of webinars that participants can do at their leisure, along with an independent project.”
