Did your grandmum use a tea cozy? Do you put vinegar on your chips? Is your dad keeping a spare in the boot? Does your mum wear a pinney? Does your Family Tree include British ancestry somewhere, or do you enjoy all things British?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might want to find out more about the Daughters of the British Empire (DBE). The organization connects women of British and Commonwealth heritage in friendship and philanthropy. The national website is www.dbenational.org and for Washington dtate, www.dbeinwa.org. Or contact Jenny Anttila, the local organizer: 206-335-2369 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chapters meet throughout Western Washington and the Tri-Cities.
