Daughters of our DAR Service for Veterans Chair help deliver needed items to the Staunton Community Based Outpatient Clinic on "Delivery Day" along with members of other chapters in District VI.
Our chapter is approved by the Department of Defense to be a Vietnam War Commemorative Partner. We honored local Vietnam veterans at Staunton's Community Based Outpatient Clinic on
National Vietnam Veterans Day to celebrate and thank them for their service .
Each year our chapter honors three high school seniors as Good Citizens at our April Awards Luncheon. The third young lady is not pictured as she was involved with a Virginia State High School League event.
Chapter members seek many avenues where they can be of service to our area veterans, especially through the Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Staunton. Members also participate in events that honor veterans for their service to our country.
Several chapter members work as volunteers with the Augusta Historical Society to help catalog historical records, while other members participate in cataloging records through NSDAR's Patriot Records Project Committee. The records are available to anyone researching their lineage.
Many members of the chapter are former school teachers and "give back" by volunteering in classes and school activities as well as in a local homeless shelter. Members seek to educate our youth about historic events and their importance to our lives through instructional and celebratory activities.
National holidays are perfect venues for our members to show our patriotism by participation in Flag Day Celebrations, Memorial Day Observances, and Fourth of July and Veterans' Day Parades.
Diligence in utilizing nature's gifts is paramount to chapter members in all aspects of daily living. Conservation "Minutes" are monthly additions to meeting agendas, and the chapter sponsors conservation projects such as recycling plastic. See pictures in the Photo Gallery.
Women's health issues are special areas of concern to members, and our chairman of this committee is an exceptional resource in keeping us up to date at our meetings about current events which pertain to us as mothers and matriarchs of our families.
