SCRAP BOOK AND NATIONAL PRESS BOOK

It is maintained by the Public Relations Chairman National (See Standings Rules 6 and 7: IV-1) consists of publicity submitted by State and National Societies, and "is compiled by the Public Relations Chairman from programs, and pictures of interest to the National Society.".

The National Scrap Book which is completed each year becomes part of a growing record which preserves and publicizes the activities engaged in by U.S. Daughters of 1812. These books, once they are submitted, are the property of the National Society U.S.D. of 1812 and will be maintained at our National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition to the National Press and Scrap Book. The Public Relations Chairman also maintains a separate Scrap Book that is bemaintained for the U.S.D. of 1812 President and will include, but not be limited to, national publicity items of interest to the President and National Officers.

Some of the reports and other materials by chapters and state organizations will be posted on this web site and the contributions made by individual chapters and state organizations recognized when we meet in April. Your Public Relations Chairman is especially interested in photos and information regarding of historical sites and events, including battles and forts and individuals who played an important role in the War of 1812. We will be using the War of 1812 Trails web site to locate, map, and illustrate what happened during the War of 1812, why it happened, when it happened and who did what as part of our Preparing for the Bicentennial of the War of 1812.

State Public Relations Chairmen should have their reports turned in to the National Chairman by Feb 15. State Chairmen need to set a deadline for chapter Public Relations Chairmen to turn in reports to them which is no later than Feb 1.

We are Celebrating
the Bicentennial of the War of 1812

Dear Daughters,

The Bicentennial of the War of 1812 presents us with an opportunity to get the word out, to let others know what we, the U.S. Daughters of 1812, do and why the War of 1812 was important and continues to be important to Americans living today.

We have a Publicity Information Circular on our National U.S. Daughters of 1812 Web Site: http://www.usdaughters1812.org/1812_PR_Brochure.pdf. Please scroll down to the second page. This circular contains a concise statement of what we as Daughters of 1812 do as an organization. Make a few copies and share it with others. Your local library may agree to let you put a few copies of this brochure on its display table.

Preparation for the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 will require much work and cooperation on the part of our members. U. S. Daughters in chapters in various states can be of immense help in identifying and helping publicize 1812 sites, persons and events within their own states. Chapters should also be able to provide local newspapers with press releases and radio stations with spot announcements for patriotic observances such as Constitution Day, Bill of Rights Day, the anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore which led Francis Scott Key to compose our National Anthem, and the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.

The best publicity involves local people reporting on their own history and those who made it. This is why this chairman loved grave markings and enjoyed the six years she served as the Alabama Grave Marking Chairman. We got wonderful publicity on grave markings when we could tie the 1812 veteran whose grave was being dedicated and the cemetery to the people in a specific local community. Web sites which provide photos of grave markings and information about 1812 ancestors have proven to be great interest generators, very popular with families and their friends.

I would like to get schools and school children involved by providing schools with on line instructional materials and interactive quizzes on the Resource Web Site that can be used by teachers who are teaching fifth and sixth graders American History. Your chapter also might want to consider sponsoring poster and essay contests and offering certificates and small cash awards.

Providing a Record- Scrap Book Requirements

It is the responsibility of Chapter Public Relations Chairmen to keep a scrapbook of all clippings about her chapter and to produce a written description of public relations activities engaged in by her chapter including grave markings, historical markers, awards made and programs given on any aspect of the War of 1812.

In compiling newspaper clippings that are to be included in a Scrap Book, it is important to have the dateline and the name of the newspaper or other publication. The chapter chairman should have three copies of every publicity article that is published. She should retain one copy for her chapter scrapbook, a second copy for the state publicity chairman and a third copy for
me, the Public Relation Chairman National. “Clippings should be forwarded as soon as they are received. Do not hold clippings.” For more information, see the National Handbook, pages 77 and 78 or email me.

State Public Relations Chairmen should have their reports turned in to the National Chairman by Feb 15. State Chairmen need to set a deadline for chapter Public Relations Chairmen to turn in reports to them which is no later than Feb 1.

Thanking you in advance for your help

Sincerely yours,

Linda W. Shabo
Public Relations Chairman National
