The West Florida Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution received a Proclamation from the City of Destin during the City Council meeting March 3, 2014.
Cynthia Wilson, regent of the West Florida Chapter, was honored by this proclamation and said, “The West Florida Chapter of the National Society of the Daughter of the American Revolution was honored to have organized in Destin on Feb. 8 of this year and look forward to serving the community with our outreach and volunteer programs. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s volunteer service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism.
“The NSDAR was established in 1890 and we have more than 177 thousand active members worldwide and more than three thousand chapters. West Florida, the chapter located in Destin, is the 103rd chapter in Florida. We selected our name because during the American Revolution, Florida was divided into two territories and the panhandle was known as West Florida. The West Florida Chapter will serve members living in the surrounding areas of Okaloosa and Walton Counties. We are honored by this proclamation and look forward to becoming an active supporter of Destin and the surrounding area. Thank you to Mayor Seevers for all she has accomplished during her terms as mayor of this fine city.”
