Two new members recently joined the Pilchuck chapter of the Daughters of the American Colonists.

Mary Erickson and Candy Thoreson were officially installed as National Society Daughters of the American Colonists members, having verified their family heritage in North America prior to the American Revolution.

Erickson and Thoreson are now a part of the local chapter, Washington state society and the national society, which is one of the nation’s largest hereditary organizations.

The installation took place at the May 10 meeting of the Pichuck DAC, held at the Carriage Club Estates in south Everett.

DAC is an organization open to all who have ancestors from the era of Colonial America.

The objectives of the National Society Daughters of the American Colonists are patriotic, historical and educational.

Members research and record the history and deeds of the American colonists; commemorate deeds of colonial interest; and inculcate and foster love of America and its institutions.

The Pilchuck chapter is made up of members from Mukilteo and Everett. The society meets the second Saturday of the month in members’ homes.

If interested in joining the DAC, or for more information, email res0t2ic@frontier.com.
