We Joined Other Area Chapters in the Annual Flag Day Celebration

 President Woodrow Wilson designated June 14 as National Flag Day. Each year at the Wilson Birthplace and Museum, three local DAR chapters invite the community to join with "President Wilson" to commemorate this special day.

Activities and Service Projects

Honoring and Supporting Our Veterans

  Chapter members seek many avenues where they can be of service to our area veterans, especially through the Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Staunton and the multitude of Assisted Living Homes in the surrounding area. 


Preserving Our Heritage

 

Several chapter members work as volunteers with the Augusta Historical Society to help catalog historical records.  Additionally, members are actively involved with preservation of local cemeteries.


Promoting Literacy and Education

  

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.

Celebrating Our Freedom

  

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.

Conserving Our Environment

  

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.

Supporting Women's Issues

  

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.  This chairman is always keeping us informed on current events which pertain to us as mothers and matriarchs of our families.
