Several of our members are actively involved in the transcription
of U.S. Census records and assist prospective members with their
genealogical research. During the Young Administration (2013-
2016), we will be part of "Celebrate America," an effort which
includes restoring and improving the NSDAR complex of historic buildings, enhancing awareness of the DAR, and funding
community grants for historic preservation, education, and
patriotism. DAR members are also working toward a collective
goal of completing one million community service hours.
At each meeting a member or guest speaker presents a program that is always informative and entertaining. In March we are
privileged to hear the writing of our American History essay
contest winners from local schools, and each year a graduating
senior is presented with a monetary scholarship.
In November we honor our local veterans by inviting them to a
member-prepared buffet lunch. Throughout the year we collect
toiletry items that are delivered by our chaplain to the VA
Medical Center in Salem, VA. Members have placed over fifty
flags to mark the grave sites of our veterans.

Our chapter comes together the second Saturday in September to enjoy a catered luncheon and begin our DAR calendar year. We have meetings once a month, complete with good food and entertaining and enlightening speakers. We vary our meeting days so that all members can attend.
