At a combined meeting recently of the Jane George Chapter of the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century and the Territorial Chapter, Daughters of American Colonists, members and guests met at the Bonn-Fire Restaurant in Chino Valley for a special presentation of "Apron-to-Apron" by guest speaker Sandee Hanahan.
Mrs. Hanahan took attendees through time from the earliest aprons recorded (Adam and Eve) to Colonial times and beyond. Members and guests donned aprons from various time periods and shared stories of the people who wore them.
One guest brought an apron that was more than 100 years old and was a wedding gift to her Norwegian great-grandmother, according to a press release.
