Rosa Lee Seymour, Honorary Chapter Regent of the Three Rivers Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was honored last week at the 122 Continental Congress in Washington DC. She received the Volunteer Information Specialist (VIS) Volunteer of the Year Award. Mrs. Seymour was very instrumental in organizing this chapter. The chapter organized in October 2006 with 82 members, and has grown to 161 members. She served the chapter as Chapter Regent for six years and was just named Honorary Chapter Regent for Life at their May meeting. She has served as Chairman on several Florida State Society Committees, and National Society Committees.
Seymour has freely volunteered her time and talents to her state and to the national committee for over a decade. She has worked on every aspect of the committee and its projects. She has not faltered, even in times of personal crisis. The award is richly deserved. Congratulations, Rosa!
