About the Chapter
The Montgomery Chapter was founded as the Watson Van Buren Chapter on March 31, 1911 in the home of Mrs H.W. Johnson. There were thirteen original members: Mrs. H.W. Johnson, Mrs. J.E. Chadwick, Mrs. J.M. Wheeler, Mrs. I.T. Pitman, Mrs. H.C. Turner, Misses Lillian and Gertrude Barker, and Ethel and Miriam Owings. On January 16, 1913 the chapter was granted a charter. Mrs. Oliver, State Regent, and Mrs. Foristell, State Registrar, were present and installed the chapter officers.
While never a large chapter, the Montgomery Chapter continues to be very active. There is a monthly article about the chapter in the Montgomery Standard. Each year the chapter presents an American History Award to the Montgomery County R II schools and Wellsville School as well as the Good Citizenship Award to the Wellsville School. Additionally, they have donated flags and constitution book marks to several local schools.
Chapter meetings are held the first Friday of each month beginning at 12:30 PM.
