The New York City Chapter's annual luncheon commemorating the anniversary of George & Martha Washington was held January 26th at the Colony Club, the first social club established in New York City by and for women.
Chapter Daughters were delighted to host Valerie Tripp, the award winning author of many of the beloved American Girl books. The New York City Chapter was honored to present Ms. Tripp with the DAR Women in the Arts Recognition Award.
Members from the Luncheon Committee crafted unique purple hued (in honor of Martha Washington's wedding day shoes) outfits for six American Girl dolls that were part of a silent-auction. A donation was made to the Mount Kisco Library in Mount Kisco, NY from the proceeds.
