We have a WINNER! The Little Rock-Centennial Chapter DAR is so proud of our member and registrar Kathy Balkman! We received notification from ASDAR State Regent, Junelle Mongno, that Kathy is the national winner of the DAR Service for Veterans/Outstanding DAR Volunteer Award. Kathy received this award in the State of Arkansas and was also the award winner in the DAR South Central Division. The Little Rock-Centennial Chapter nominated Kathy, and we are so proud of her commitment and dedication in all the amazing work she does. She is the coordinator for the Veterans History Project that is recorded in the Library of Congress, she leads us in the Veterans Shoe Box Drive every year, she is the State of Arkansas Co-Chair Service for Veterans, and the ASDAR VAVS Representative. Last year she was Female Volunteer of the year at the VA.
We are so proud of you Kathy and everything you do not only for our chapter, ASDAR, and NSDAR, but also for our veterans! Thank you!
Due to the current pandemic, our March and April meetings were cancelled along with our May luncheon. Normally, our new chapter officers would be installed and introduced at our May luncheon so we wanted to make sure to recognize them here. Before listing the new officers, we want to say a huge thank you to our 2018-2020 officers! We are so proud of everything our chapter has accomplished under each of your leadership.
Here are the Little Rock-Centennial Chapter 2020-2022 officers. Congratulations, and we look forward to an amazing next two years!
