The William P. Duval Chapter was organized May 15, 1957.
The chapter has a continuing involvement with Winter Park High School awarding scholarships to two outstanding graduating seniors. We award a yearly scholarship representing the chapter and we also award a four year scholarship in memory of Martha S. Turner. 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 BoxTops for Education Program. We are currently in the process of reorganizing the Battle of Thomas Creek Society of the C.A.R. We are hosting a monthly genealogy research group. This meeting is held at the West Oaks Branch of the Orange County Library System 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. 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 Virginia Patton Saunders for chapter and membership information.
