PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

July 2014

 Happy Independence Day fellow Questers

It was 238 years ago that the Continental Congress in Philadelphia finished and approved The Declaration of Independence.  A declaration announcing our independence from Great Britain.  In England, our forefathers were considered traitors to the King and threatened with hanging. On the other hand, our citizens were overjoyed and it was determined by John Adams that the day would be celebrated with “pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations throughout the land".  Today, we continue to celebrate our nations freedom and all that it represents … liberty, freedom and justice for all.  And to think, that most of what took place in 1776 was in the city of Philadelphia.  Philadelphia, the birthplace of our Nation but also the birthplace, in 1944, of Questers. As we celebrate our nations founding and our many blessings this 4th of July brings, let us also celebrate the 70th anniversary of Questers International and the rewards our Questers membership provides to each and every one of us.  

 Quest on…..

Questers RESTORE!  Questers PRESERVE!  Questers COLLECT!  Questers SHARE!

What if?

You had to start each day with no memory, record or treasure of the past ?
Historians neglected to educate the public ?
Adults failed to interest younger generations in the past?
No one ever challenged the research of historians ?
