Biographical or historical data :

The Chittenden County Union of the King's Daughters and Sons was part of the International order of the King's Daughters and Sons. Its first convention took place in 1925 and its seventy-eighth and last convention in 2002. This organization was composed of Christian women and men dedicated to service in Christ's name. Its program was three-fold, Religious, Educational and Philanthropic. Its purpose was to train its members as well as others for Christian Service. In 1944 there were fifteen different Circles in the Union. In addition to working for their own King's Daughters Home in St.Albans, Vermont the Circle members assisted in the work of the Children's Aid Society, the Elizabeth Lund Home, Kurn Hattin Home, the Preventorium, the Brandon School, the Red Cross, and the Vermont Church Council. At the last convention in 2002 there were only three remaining circles. The sixteen members present voted to disband and give the remaining money in the treasury to the King's Daughters Home in St. Albans.
