It must be the teacher in me, but there's something about a wall full of sticky notes that is so appealing. DAR Members shared personal stories of volunteer efforts and service in their communities on the post it notes and placed them on the wall. I spent a good bit of time reading others' ideas and even jotted down a few that I want to share with my chapter. This year, DAR members logged 4,760,314 service hours!

Blue Star Families is an organization that supports military service men and women and their families through a variety of programs. I was pleased to learn about many of their initiatives, including Books on Bases and Operation Appreciation. We penned quite a few thank you cards for military members and their families at Celebrate America Night.
At the end of this year's Continental Congress, I left feeling both energized and exhausted, excited and hopeful. I met some wonderful people who I now consider friends and hope to see them again next year. A blog reader even stopped to say hello as she was leaving the Congress Reception on Saturday night. So much fun!
