Valerie Jacobs Chase
Connecticut State Society
State President

Connecticut was honored to mark the grave of Captain Simeon Haley and his daughter Catherine on September 17th.   In attendance were Vice President National Mary Raye Casper, National Historian Jan Johnpier and numerous Connecticut Daughters.  The event was held in a Victorian Cemetery in Mystic.  Captain and Ms. Haley are buried along the river bank of this historic and beautiful setting.  A lunch followed the remembrance.  Connecticut was pleased to honor this veteran and a real daughter.

The Society participated in the Massing of the Colors on October 2nd.  The Society flag was displayed and a service followed the processional of hereditary flags.

A large group of Daughters attended the Commemoration of the Burning of the Ships in Essex in May.  After the Parade members strolled down to the harbor for the ceremony recalling the events of 1814.

The Associate Council in April was attended by five members; National Historian Jan Johnpier, Public Relations Linda Shabo, Co-Chairs of Historic Landmarks Elizabeth Oderwald and Ida Ransom and State President Valerie Chase .  Additionally Ida Ransom served as a page.  The Connecticut State Society pin was sold as a fund raiser.   The Board of Management meeting in October was attended by two members.  The Connecticut Society held three regular meetings, an officers meeting and countless calls and emails regarding the recognition of those who were held in Bermuda.

Connecticut continues to work to support the Anna Warner Bailey house in New London.   Six Junior ROTC medals were presented to students at their school functions.  Female veterans and their families were remembered throughout the year with children’s books, Christmas mugs and cash.  Members donated stamps which were sent to Washington for veteran rehabilitation.  Caleb Brewster was honored with a plaque and donation to the building maintenance fund.

Three state proclamations were received from Governor Danel P. Malloy’s office and two were displayed in libraries with books and supporting materials during Septembers Star Spangled Banner Day celebrations.
