De Anza DAR welcomes guest speaker Richard Lederer, inducts two new members

Marti Meiners, Vernel Albertson, Julie Sanderson and Martha Gresham

Richard Lederer, Ph.D., recently entertained De Anza DAR Chapter with his witty talk “Fabulous Facts about our American Presidents” at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Because attendees wanted to hear his humorous insight into usage of the English language, he modified his talk to also include gaffs and bloopers from student essays. After the event, Dr. Lederer signed his books for the buyers.

Chaplain Martha Gresham and Registrar Marti Meiners inducted two new members, Julie Sanderson, of Encinitas, and Vernel Albertson, of Carlsbad, who transferred from another area. The chapter now has nearly 110 members.

De Anza members reside in Cardiff, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, Leucadia, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and other nearby areas. The chapter meets in Rancho Santa Fe. A woman 18 years or older is eligible for membership who can prove direct lineage from a Revolutionary War patriot. An Act of Congress founded the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in 1890 to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism.
