An exciting new Front Range Chapter NSDAR website is currently being built!
We look forward to sharing the new site with you.


DAR Schools

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution supports two schools in the Appalachian region: Kate Duncan Smith DAR School in Alabama and Tamassee DAR School in South Carolina.  Also, through its American Indians Committee, NSDAR assists in the education of Indian youth through scholarships and support of Bacone College in Oklahoma and Chemawa Indian School in Oregon.  Four other schools are given financial assistance, including scholarships and material donations.  For more information about DAR schools and other DAR activities and interests, please visit the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) website by clicking the link in the right margin of this page under the Information heading.

Individual members of NSDAR chapters give additional support to the schools through the Campbell Soup Labels for Education Program and the General Mills' Box Tops for Education Program by saving labels and other proofs of purchase that the schools can redeem for cash, educational materials, computers, and even vans.  Our chapter is proud to be active in this program. To learn more about these programs please click the image links in the right margin of this page.


 

Other Chapter Activities and Interests


At most of our chapter meetings, an invited speaker gives an interesting educational program.  Typical topics have been "The Junior ROTC Program," Heros of '76," "Cooking Customs for Christmas,"  "Toys in the Attic" by a docent of the NSDAR Museum in Washington, D.C., "The Gifts of Simplicity--Shakers," and "The Lewis and Clark Expedition."  A program on "The Lost Cities of Colorado" was prepared by a member of our chapter who is a published author and researcher on Colorado history.   Women's history and women's issues are of importance to us and are frequently the subjects of our programs.  We have also enjoyed programs presented by outstanding students from local schools.  We often acknowledge students' achievements by way of awards ceremonies at our chapter meetings.

In January we have a serious business meeting and discuss plans for the Colorado State Conference to be held the following April, an annual event where our chapter is well represented and recognized with achievement awards.

Summer may find us enjoying genealogical workshops,  copying information from tombstones in an unrecorded pioneer cemetery,  or taking pictures for our chapter scrapbook when we visit national historical locations.  In July, delegates from our chapter represent us at the annual NSDAR Continental Congress in Washington, D.C.   Other members attend if they wish.

Our homes proudly display the American flag on National holidays.

We are proud to honor Constitution Week in September.

One of our favorite activities occurs during the Christmas Holiday Season, when we bring gifts to be distributed to United States Military veterans at the Veterans' Hospital.  In the past, we have celebrated the Holiday Season with a joyous luncheon at the famous Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver.  We held our most recent Christmas luncheon in a quaint local tearoom, where we honored two of our members who have belonged to the DAR for fifty years.

We enjoy participating in Project Patriot with greeting cards and donations for gifts to be sent to military personnel.

Some of us have made quilts and blankets for a project of Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.). Others are more inclined to spend their time in genealogical research, perhaps in collecting material for public use at the NSDAR Library in Washington, D.C., or in arranging genealogical workshops to assist applicants in their efforts to document their descent from a patriot of the American Revolutionary War.

We encourage our chapter members to participate in various literacy programs.

Our chapter participated in the Veterans History Project to interview war veterans and record their personal stories for preservation in the Library of Congress. 

We always have a choice of rewarding NSDAR programs in which to utilize our time and talents, but we also recognize that we are living in a busy world and must be selective about how we spend those few precious spare-time minutes.  If you are thinking about joining the DAR, we promise you a rewarding experience geared toward your own personal interests and available time.  Our Membership Chairman will gladly respond to your E-mail and telephone inquiries and will arrange a personal meeting at your convenience to determine your eligibility.  You will be given individual assistance throughout the application process.  As a prospective member, you will be welcomed by your new DAR friends at our monthly luncheon meetings.
