Members, associates, and prospective members of the Rochelle Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, marched and rode in the Chapter's float in the Amboy Depot Days parade. The parade theme "Service is Golden" was reflected on gold medallions highlighting the Society's missions of Patriotism, Education and Historical Preservation through service to veterans, students, and community. The 100th anniversary of women receiving the right to vote was portrayed with some members dressed as suffragettes from 1919. The chapter's float won 2nd prize in the parade theme category and was featured on page 3!
As a Vietnam Commemorative Chapter, we are part of the Department of Defense's 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the War in Vietnam. Veterans have been honored through luncheons, sailing on an authentic WWII Higgins Boat, ceremonies recognizing their service, and individual recognition at local nursing homes.
