VALPARAISO — Members and prospective members of Niceville’s Daughters of American Colonists Eucheeanna chapter recently gathered at the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida for their organizing meeting.
Florida State Regent Sue Bratton installed the new chapter board, including: Regent Margaret Nichols, Vice Regent Mary Ellen Ahlstorm, 2nd Vice Regent Virginia Poffenberger, Chaplain Rita Takeuchi, Recording Secretary Tanya Ditto, Treasurer Susan VanderZeyde, Registrar Scarlett Brock and Historian Dianna Lantz.
Bratton, who realized Niceville lacked a chapter, approached Nichols about forming one. Because there was such an interest in a Niceville chapter, Eucheeanna's formation was approved and organized in six months.
The chapter’s name honors Euchee Indians and the first Scottish settlement in territorial Florida.
