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.
