White Tanks Daughters or American Revolution gather for education, dessert

MEETING

Posted

Members of the White Tank Mountains Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) met Oct. 3 to learn more about its namesake, the White Tank Mountains, from Karen Krause of the White Tank Mountains Conservancy, and to make Paracord “Survival” bracelets for military troops and first responders.

The Archaic Peoples, the Hohokam and the Yavapai used the natural white granite water collection wells or “tanks” in the White Tank Mountains for about 3,000 years before they were first identified on an 1867 map of Arizona. The bracelets provide 7.5 feet of paracord and 7 to 9 individual nylon strands inside it for emergency use.

Also, to honor the military, member Karen Hodes served carrot cake she baked using an updated version of one of the earliest American carrot cake recipes, the recipe used by President George Washington’s steward Fraunces at the first presidential residence in New York.
