This day did not start at all well! The plan was to take the N3 bus but the driver did not stop! After chasing the bus and catching up to him, he would not open the door! Suffice it to say that I filed a formal complaint with the Metro.
The mishap with the bus meant a trip by the subway and then on to another bus to get to DAR headquarters. I was 40 minutes late for the Library orientation session slated for 9:00. I wanted to be in the session with other members of my chapter-we had exchanged schedules in advance so I knew that they would be there. Had I been able to get there, my readers would have the latest information about the DAR Library and what is available online - however that information will have to come from Sue, Sally or Judy!
There was more time today in the Library and then lunch over at the Department of Interior cafeteria - a new place for me. Food was good, reasonably priced, and the cafeteria is huge affording space for a number of DAR members to have lunch.
Two other events were scheduled for today: the VIS (Volunteer Information Specialists) Committee meeting and the California Tea. The VIS meeting consisted of questions to the chairman - a bit different format than in prior years.
Anne Loucks chapter 1st Vice Regent Sue Busenius, 2nd Vice Regent Judy Onopchenko and I went through the receiving line at the same time-just like it was planned so that we could get a picture with California State Regent Karon Jarrard. As the "kick-off" event, it was wonderful. There was good food including a chocolate fountain and an opportunity to network with other California daughters.
