Honoring 125 years of the King’s Daughters in Springfield. Before there was Social Security, retirement accounts, or Mothers Day, and the state of Illinois was only 70 years old- there was the King’s Daughters. Like us and Follow us this year as we post pictures, articles, and remembrances from the past 125 years. See the rich history and ties to Lincoln, General Foods and Mar-a-Lago, and the women involved with the 50 plus circles and memberships exceeding 1500. Times are changing, but all the while this dynamic group of women have kept on a mission- to aid the life of the elderly. From 1883-2018 going strong, always positively impacting the elderly then and now more than ever. Check out some of the members from this 1965 article
