The Tarpon Springs Princess Chasco Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, along with the Clearwater, Dunedin and New Port Richey DAR chapters, co-hosted a luncheon honoring Florida State Regent Cynthia Wolfe Symanek on Jan. 3 at the Belleair Country Club.

The Princess Chasco Chapter presented Symanek with a donation for the Florida State Regents project and mementos from Tarpon Springs.

The Florida State Regents Project for 2013-15 is supporting homeless women veterans in the state. Locally, the Florida State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution will be supporting Athena House, a transitional housing program in Ybor City that provides safe housing and treatment services specifically for female veterans who are homeless. Athena participants are provided safe housing for up to 24 months.

Princess Chasco member Dorothy Henderson was presented a certificate of appreciation for 50 years of dedicated service and membership in the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Henderson joined the DAR Dec. 11, 1963, in Youngstown, Ohio, and served as regent of Poland Canfield Chapter NSDAR in the late 1960s.

A member of the Tarpon Springs chapter since 1999, Henderson has served in several offices and on many committees and is the current chairman of the Princess Chasco Chapter National Defense committee.

The DAR is a nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women's service organization, whose mission is to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.
