Dear Daughters,

I am excited and humbled to become the Massachusetts State Regent and having the opportunity to guide all of us in our journey to honor our Revolutionary Patriots and fulfill the mission of our Society to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism.

We are so very fortunate to be living in Massachusetts that is so rich with history since its inception starting in 1620 to the present. As I have encountered many visitors to our state, they have expressed the thrill to be here surrounded by all the many places and locations that are reminders of the birth or our nation.

We will continue to do service to our communities, we will continue to preserve our historic artifacts and locations, and we will continue to inform and educate those who wish to learn of our great beginnings and patriots. These three missions are near and dear to all of us.

I hope you will embrace the ideas and projects that will be announced in the coming months and years.

Thank you for your support and I welcome ideas and suggestions, we are a team and as a team we can do many great things!

The Future Belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their Dreams.
