A Warm Welcome to History
Recently, on a delightful December day, Walnut Village in Anaheim played the perfect host to the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). About 40 members gathered at this Orange County retirement community for their monthly meeting, while immersing themselves in a patriotic, holiday-themed luncheon, featuring classic American fare.
Celebrating Heritage and Giving Back in Orange County
The DAR’s presence at Walnut Village was marked by more than just its monthly meeting. Adding a charitable touch to the event, residents enjoyed a DAR-sponsored holiday bake sale, with proceeds going to local charities, many supporting veterans.
“Walnut Village bent over backward to make us feel welcome,” said Walnut Village resident Adelia Morrison, a DAR member with roots tracing back six generations to Colonial times. Her pride in Walnut Village’s hospitality reflects the community’s commitment to embracing groups, clubs and organizations significant to its residents.
A Legacy of Patriotism and Service
DAR is a non-profit organization founded in 1890, dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history and ensuring America’s future through better education. These women, linked by ancestry to the nation’s early days, contribute millions of service hours annually in various community services, emphasizing support for military personnel and veterans, educational scholarships and aid to underserved schools. This dedication mirrors the character of the best retirement communities in California, with Walnut Village being a leading example.
