The Council Bluffs Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will hold their next regular business meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Council Bluffs Library, 400 Willow Ave. in Council Bluffs. The meeting will be held in Meeting Room E.
Members are encouraged to wear red to this meeting, a reminder that February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in women and results in the death of nearly one woman every minute.
Following the regular business meeting, Janice Ehrens will present a program, “WWII – Iwo Jima.”
Additionally, February is Black History Month. NSDAR has compiled the names and experiences of the African Americans, Native Americans, and individuals of mixed heritage that fought in America’s fight for independence from Britain.
This information is available in the book entitled “Forgotten Patriots: African American and American Indian Patriots in the Revolutionary War,” and is free to the public by visiting www.dar.org/library/fp.cfm.
All current or prospective members of DAR are invited to attend. The Council Bluffs Chapter has members from Western Iowa including Pottawattamie, Cass, and Harrison Counties.
