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.

  1. Tampa's Lance McCullers shows killer instinct in pitching Astros to World Series


    HOUSTON — It felt like the beginning on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, the arrival of a new force on the World Series stage. The Astros are back, for the first time in a dozen years, and they want to stay a while.

  2. Jones: Where are the difference-makers on the Bucs defense?


    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — They can't tackle. They can't cover. They can't pressure the quarterback, let alone sack him.

  3. Bucs-Bills journal: Breakout game for Bucs tight end O.J. Howard


    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It's obscured by the final score and a disappointing loss, but Bucs rookie tight end O.J. Howard had a breakout game Sunday, exceeding his season totals for catches and touchdowns in one afternoon.

  4. Vladislav Namestnikov is Lightning's top-line 'secret'

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — Nikita Kucherov is piling up the goals. Steven Stamkos is an assist machine. They make for an impressive pairing in a league that favors scoring pairs over the more traditional three-player scoring lines.

    Vladislav Namestnikov (90) has three goals and 10 points on a line with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov.
  5. Bucs-Bills report card: Grading the Bucs' 30-27 loss at Buffalo


    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Hard to believe, but this was only the second time in their history that the Bucs played a regular-season game in Buffalo. After Sunday loss, they wouldn't mind going another 40 years without playing here again.
