Calendar

 

We have a fantastic and welcoming group of ladies, which makes our time together a lot of fun. To accommodate the schedules of our members, we hold regular chapter meetings and crafting projects on Saturdays.

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.

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.

Can't make the meetings? No problem! There are plenty of other ways to get involved such as doing volunteer work from home (including knitting), online, or at our community events that fall on other days of the week. Even your own volunteer work with your child's school or sport can support our efforts for DAR Service to America in our community.
