2017-2019

Our theme is ‘THE SPIRIT OF HOSPITALITY OPENS DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY.”

“Encourage one another and build each other up.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11

The Regent’s Project is The Guardian Trust.

The William P. Duval Chapter was organized on May 15, 1957. We hold our meetings in Winter Park, Florida; however, our members live throughout the Central Florida area and beyond. On May 10, 2017 we celebrated the 60th anniversary of our chapter.

The chapter has a continuing involvement with Winter Park High School and we award an annual scholarship to an outstanding graduating senior. The chapter raises monies for the chapter scholarship and for support of several area veterans’ projects, including help for homeless veterans.

For five years straight, we have collected more than 1,000 box tops each of those years to send to Tamassee and Kate Duncan Smith DAR Schools for their Box Tops for Education Program.

We host a monthly genealogy research group. This meeting is held at a Library on the last Thursday of every month from 1:00-4:00 p.m. to help anyone who needs more guidance in their research of their ancestors. For more information, email our Registrar Frances Purser.

Every year we are presented the Winter Park City’s Constitution Week Proclamation with a visit from the Mayor of Winter Park. The Winter Park Public Library has accepted, along with our Constitution Week Proclamations, all of our chapter scrapbooks for their living history section.

We invite you to contact the Regent Bettie Jenkins for chapter and membership information.
