Our Organization has been a mighty force for 125 years, and with the fortitude of our membership we will survive another 125 years. All Daughters are encouraged to order this pin and wear it proudly. When someone asks you about the meaning of the pin, share the story behind it. Let them know that strong Southern women founded our Organization, and that we now carry the torch.
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the original order was delayed at the engraver. If you paid for this pin and hoped to receive it at the MS Division Workshop in Louisville on Saturday, March 16, please be patient. For more information, contact Division President Pam Mauldin.
