Nancy Karrick attended the 127th Continental Congress of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, in Washington, D.C. June 20-24, 2018.  Daughters left on a chartered bus which originated in Mobile on June 17 and returned June 25.  While in Washington, delegates attended Opening Night with all of its pomp and pageantry.  One of the highlights of the evening was viewing the newly renovated panels on the stage which depict various scenes of colonial America.  Several general sessions and business sessions were held in Constitution Hall, site of the Congress.  Other activities attended were the Alabama-Mississippi sponsored Southern Sunrise Breakfast, Patriotism Luncheon, Historic Preservation Luncheon, Education Awards Night, DAR School Luncheon, Service to America Night, National Defense Night, Memorial Service, and Instillation of new state and national leaders.  Each of the sessions and luncheons featured outstanding speakers in their area of expertise.

Nancy was also honored on June 19 at the American Heritage Forum in the cross stitch division of Fiber Arts competition, for her stitchery depicting World War I soldiers in battle.  Her entry was awarded second place in the national DAR competition.  A certificate and blue ribbon were presented by Diane Oliver, National Chairman of the American Heritage Committee.

While in Washington, the group had the opportunity to view or visit many of the monuments in the capital and ended the time there with a tour of Arlington National Cemetery and viewing the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Nancy serves as chaplain and corresponding secretary of the Ft. Mims Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
