The newly elected Malibu Daughters of the American Revolution Executive Board met Saturday to plan projects and programs through next June. Highlights of the year will include tours of the Reagan Presidential Library, Huntington Library and art collections, as well as three colonial history events.

Military outreach projects will include support of a military family in need and the chapter’s award-winning project to send books to military personnel stationed overseas. The chapter’s educational focus will support a cottage at a DAR School in South Carolina, and will increase members’ individual literacy work in Los Angeles County. A special Malibu community project is in the planning stages, underwritten by a perpetual fund established to honor charter member Romaine Andaloro, who died in March
