During a visit to the Whitman Mission Chapter, Regent Chris Crowder noticed a flight of dragonflies darting over the pond, glistening green in the late afternoon sunlight. "Perhaps," she thought, "this beautiful creature would make a perfect symbol for Narcissa Prentiss Chapter!"
Research followed: What does the dragonfly symbolize? Different cultures around the world see the dragonfly as a symbol of hope, joy, and change. Power and poise are often attributed to this beautiful insect. Also, clear vision, a positive sense of self, and living life to the fullest.
The Japanese consider the dragonfly to be a symbol of
courage and happiness.
Yes, the dragonfly is the perfect symbol for our chapter.
