We believe in Fun, Food and Fellowship.  We have a fantastic and welcoming group of ladies, which makes our time together a lot of fun.  Our crafting days build friendships and sisterhood while also supporting our outreach to current military service personnel and veterans.

 Prospective members and other interested guests are always welcome! If you would like to attend one of our crafting days, meetings or events, please contact us.

Except where noted; meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month from February through May and September through November.  We also have other get togethers and/or volunteering opportunities on different days.

Socializing starts at 10 a.m. and our meeting convenes promptly at 10:30 a.m. with an informative program presented by a guest speaker, followed by chapter business.

There are plenty of ways to get involved either from home, online, or at events. Even your own volunteer work with your child's school or sport can support our efforts for DAR Service to America in our community.
