Colonial Heritage Month

Mary Margaret Quiggle, President, John Lee of Nansemond Chapter, Colonial Dames 17th Century, prepared the exhibit at the Roddenbery Memorial Library, Cairo, for Colonial Heritage Month.


Colonial Heritage Month is celebrated each October by the National Society Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century to commemorate our courageous ancestors who braved the treacherous waters of the North Atlantic Ocean to settle the thirteen original colonies.  These first colonists determined the direction of the formation of our country.  The John Lee of Nansemond Chapter joins the other chapters of the society in 45 states and Canada in encouraging all citizens to celebrate our priceless heritage.

John Lee of Nansemond Chapter is celebrating Colonial Heritage Month with a display at the Roddenbery Memorial Library in Cairo, Georgia.  Featured in the display are posters of the Colonization of the Thirteen Original Colonies and other posters depicting New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies.  These posters include facts about the Colonies and a timeline of some important events occurring in the colonies from 1650 to 1750.

The exhibit will be at the library for the month of October.  The information provided will benefit all ages in gaining a greater understanding of the colonization of our great nation.

Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century is a patriotic lineage organization of women who can prove lineal descent from a person who immigrated to Colonial America before 1701.
