There’s lots to celebrate in July! This month’s meeting not only celebrate’s the society’s birthday, we are also honoring our founder, Virginia Hassenflu.

She will also make a Tribute to SAGS’ Founder, Virginia Hassenflu, who passed away in November, 2016. Shirley will talk about the purpose of the DAR, how the group functions in St Augustine, and will give us a run down on how one can qualify to become a DAR member. Cake will be served after Shirley’s presentation.
