De Anza DAR swears in new members

Bettybob Williams, Harriet Steele, Susan Woolley, Catherine Stout and Marti Meiners


De Anza Chapter DAR recently swore in new members at its 78th anniversary meeting held at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. Susan Woolley of Rancho Santa Fe was admitted to the National Society DAR in June 2011 and Catherine Stout of Solana Beach was admitted in February 2012.

Woolley’s patriot ancestor is Lt. Philip Robbins of Massachusetts. Catherine’s patriot ancestor is Pvt. John Stout of Pennsylvania. Harriet Steele of Carlsbad transferred her membership from the Monserate Chapter. Her patriot ancestor is Harmanus Van Inwegen of New York.

De Anza DAR received a first place award for membership from the State Society DAR for gaining 22 new members between July 2010 and March 2012. The New York state regent challenged the California state regent to see which state would gain the higher percentage of new members. California became the “Coast with the Most” due in part to efforts of De Anza registrar Marti Meiners of Rancho Santa Fe and her active lineage committee that included Jennifer Anklesaria of Del Mar; Jeanne Bednorz of Solana Beach; Kathy Loftman and Laurel Lemarié of Rancho Santa Fe; Martha Gresham of Cardiff; Norada Wilkey of Encinitas and Joanne Murphy, formerly of Rancho Santa Fe, now of San Marcos.

De Anza meetings are held in Rancho Santa Fe. A woman 18 years or older is eligible for membership who can prove direct lineage from a Revolutionary War patriot. For more information, call Bettybob Williams 858-344-6233 or visit http://www.deanzadar.org.
