National President's Project 2018-2021

Support for Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest

Mary C. Armstrong was elected National President at the NSDAC General Assembly in April 2018 for a three-year term. Her National President's Project is to provide funding for the design development phase of interpretive signage in three areas along Poplar Forest Parkway, which will serve as the new entrance road for Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s retreat near Lynchburg, Virginia. NSDAC will also provide support necessary to complete the design, production, and printing of a new children’s book entitled Colonial Klaus in Thomas Jefferson’s House by Laura Macaluso.

Committee emphasis for 2018-2019:

The goals of this administration will change each year with the Committee emphasis. For the first year of the administration, emphasis will be placed on the following committees:

Colonial and Genealogical Records - Donate genealogical records to the NSDAC Library and local libraries to help other researchers.

National Awards- Encourage young people to honor their Country by supporting the National Awards Committee by giving local JROTC members a Medal of Award.

Patriotic Education - Teach our youth about the history of our Country by giving NSDAC bookmarks to them, serve as a tutor, and/or volunteer in schools.

Veterans Services - Honor and remember all veterans by contributing comfort items, clothes, or other materials to VA hospitals or to other veterans groups. Hold a Valentine’s Day party, take Christmas cards, have a Halloween party for the veterans.
