Earlier this month, the Stoddert-del Norte Chapter (NSDAR), held its annual Patriot Tea at the El Paso Women’s Club where El Paso’s First Lady Adair Margo was honored.
In attendance for this special occasion were members from the Stoddert-del Norte Chapter, ladies from the El Paso Women’s Club, and members from the Simeon Hart Chapter of Daughters of the Confederacy.
The Stoddert-del Norte Chapter presented Margo with a DAR plaque honoring her for her years of work preserving the art and legacy of Tom Lea.
Adair Margo is the founder of the Tom Lea Institute, a non-profit organization whose mission is to share the art and literature
produced by Tom Lea through education. Tom Lea was an American muralist, illustrator, artist, war correspondent, novelist, and historian who was born, lived and died in El Paso.
The bulk of his art and literary works were about Texas, north-central Mexico, and his World War II experience.
The chapter also honored its members’ American Patriots with a beautiful display of the original 13 colonies and the name of each chapter members’ Patriot.
