On April 19, 1999 twenty Columbia River Chapter Daughters in colonial dress met at the Richland John Dam Plaza, to plant a tree. The tulip poplar came from one of twelve trees planted in 1785 at Mount Vernon by President Washington that are still alive today. A bronze plaque was place under the tree and is currently maintained by our chapter members.
On October 22, 2017, Washington State Regent Ms. Julie Pittmann unveiled the new bench at Sunset Memorial Gardens located in the Veterans Plaza honoring "Women Who Serve".
