Organizing Regent

The Thomas Jefferson Chapter is aptly named because our Organizing Regent, Brittney Kean,  is a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson. Brittney is shown participating in one of our state projects by delivering a "Thank you for flying the American Flag" jar to KQ Grill in Erwinville, LA.

National President's Project

We were excited to hear about the President's Project at the first official meeting of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter. The project is the funding for the design development phase of the new interpretive signage in three areas along the new entrance road, the Poplar Forest Parkway, for Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson's retreat near Lynchburg, VA. Shown is National President, Mary Armstrong, holding a new children's book entitled Colonial Klaus in Thomas Jefferson's House, by Laura Macaluso. The proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the project.
