Greetings from our Florida
State Regent Elect, Cindy Addison!

Our 2023-2025 FSSDAR Conference Arrangements Committee team for the FSSDAR Regent Elect Cindy Addison Administration are excited to share her welcome letter and video introducing our new hotel location for the next 4 years! Congratulations FSSDAR Regent Elect Cindy Addison! ❤

Dear Florida Daughters:

Those of you who weren’t able to attend Florida’s 121st State Conference, Sunday Morning Business Session, might be wondering about the symbol, scripture and theme. The symbol will be the pineapple, the colonial symbol of welcome and hospitality. My Scripture will be Hebrews 13:2, the English Standard Version of the Bible. “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”

Finally, the theme of my administration will be DAR Makes a Difference. I hope you enjoy this short video very much. Thanks to Teri Dioquino, Diane Libertini, Linda McCooey and Darrell Edmonds for helping to create this short video.

Rejoicing in the Ties of DAR Service and Friendship,
Cindy Addison
