PHOTOS: La Jollan ladies in red collect cookies for the troops

Marilyn Barrett hosted an annual “Cookies for the Troops” party, Dec. 2, 2014 at her La Jolla home. Barrett, and local friends of the National Society Daughters of the Americana Revolution (DAR), La Jolla Chapter, brought dozens of cookies to share and donate to the Marines at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

Each guest dressed in red to add to the fun and some 20 pounds of cookies were collected.

Barrett’s daughter, Meredith Radzins, is a member of the Chapter along with Charlotte Perry, Linda Phillips, Nancy Shields and Virginia Brunson. Patriotic service is a major endeavor of DAR. The La Jolla Chapter has been active in providing items to the USO at the Airport, Wounded Warriors, The VA and the Chula Vista Veterans Home.
