Posted

The Grand Canyon Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated the holidays with a festive luncheon, silent auction and more.

On Saturday, Dec. 4, members held a huge silent auction with donated items including holiday decor, costume jewelry, books and homemade baked goods at the McCormick Resort Lakeside Room, according to a press release.

Regent Karen Andrews welcomed guests and Vice Regent, Stephanie Troth introduced the guest speaker, Marshall Trimble, who has been the official historian for the Arizona since 1997.

A storyteller, author, teacher, folk singer, broadcaster, and Marine veteran, Trimble focused on the state history with some entertaining stories,  the release said, adding "he sees a bright future for the state.”

The chapter also met at the National Cemetery on Cave Creek Road in Phoenix on Dec. 18 with Regent Andrews and veterans’ chairman, Valeri Carli to lay wreathes, which is an annual project of the 150-member chapter.
