Ozark Spring NSDAR to commemorate 250th Boston Tea Party anniversary


The Ozark Spring chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution monthly meeting will be a “Tea Party” beginning at noon Saturday in the American Legion Hall, 1401 Bill Virdon Blvd., West Plains.

The December meeting hostesses are the chapter’s executive board and Tea Party attendees are invited to dress in period clothing if so inspired. 

The Boston Tea Party, which took place on Dec. 16, 1773, is the landmark historic event that eventually led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the founding of a free nation. Ozark Spring Daughters, at the invitation of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum located in Boston, Mass., submitted loose tea leaves that will be tossed into the Boston Harbor during the 250th anniversary event to be held Dec. 16. 

Upcoming Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution events include the “Lights of Love” tree lighting at 5 p.m. Sunday at Roslyn Heights in Boonville, where the names of the country’s military men and women, veterans and local heroes have been submitted by Missouri’s NSDAR Chapters for the “Lights of Love” tree in remembrance of their service.

Also, Christmas Teas begin Monday through Dec. 7 at Roslyn Heights, times to be announced. The public is welcome to attend the teas by registering at the mssdar.org website. Space is limited so early registration is encouraged.
