FOKSP Recipient of DAR Special Projects Grant
The Friends of Koreshan State Park has received a matching grant in the amount of $8,050.00 from the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution for the design and production of the new interpretive signs recently installed in the historic areas of Koreshan State Park. The Estero Island Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was the sponsor of the grant.
The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, nonpolitical volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. Membership is open to women with a proven descent from a man or woman who aided the cause of liberty for what would become the United States of America.
