The Thomas Joslin Chapter of Colonial Dames XVII Century attended the 71st Texas State Conference in Richardson Feb. 26-28. The chapter brought home 21 awards for outstanding service for the 2008 year. The ladies who attended were in their finery at the “Dames Who Make A Difference” luncheon.

The Chapter was proud to receive the highest award for most new members. The Thomas Joslin Chapter meets in member homes and encourages those who are interested in their 17th century ancestry to participate in the organization.
