DAR National Day of Service:
October is fast approaching and that means our chapter will have
scheduled their service project for the DAR National Day of Service to
coincide with our founding on October 11th.
Since our founding in 1890, DAR members have worked tirelessly
to promote historic preservation, patriotism and educational ideals in
communities across this nation and in overseas chapters.

To help highlight the DAR service organization mission, members are encouraged to perform and record their volunteer service efforts. Through Service to America we hope to demonstrate the DAR’s widespread significant impact in our communities.
Members volunteer with veterans at their local veteran hospitals, make care packages for troops stationed overseas, clean up local parks, and cemeteries, work at homeless shelters and food banks, among many other service activities.
On Flag Day our chapter gathers together to hold a "Flag Retirement" ceremony. SAR & American Legion members join us in this ceremonial, respectful and solemn incineration of worn American flags.
