The Colonel George Moffett Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will host its biennial George Washington Tea to celebrate the birthday of the first president of the United States of America on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the home of Mrs. Charles W. Pyle.

The first tea was hosted in 1931 by Mrs. Ida McFaddin, wife of William P. H. McFaddin, who was the chapter’s Regent from 1928 to 1930. District, state and national DAR dignitaries, as well as local dignitaries, are invited to attend. Guests will be welcomed by the West Brook High School NJROTC Team performing its impressive Sabre Arch Salute and will be entertained by re-enactors portraying George and Martha Washington.

In February 1906, the Colonel George Moffett Chapter NSDAR was founded in Beaumont. Mrs. B. Rush Norvell was elected as its first chapter regent. DAR strives to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism via commemorative events, scholarships and educational initiatives, citizenship programs, service to veterans, meaningful community service and other activities. Membership is open to any female over 18 who can document her lineage to anyone who aided the cause of the American Revolution.
