The Chapter Sponsors DAR Good Citizen Awards and American History and Christopher Columbus essay contests for local students. The Chapter contacts all local high schools to provide applications for chapter, Indiana, and Nationally sponsored DAR scholarships. The Chapter provides American Spirit magazine subscriptions to four local libraries and distributes copies of the DAR Flag Code brochure at our award receptions. To celebrate Constitution Week, we distribute and ring bells, as well as have public displays and publicity in the newspaper. Annually, we support the National projects for DAR and Native American schools.
The Chapter participates annually in the Memorial Day ceremonies at Crown Point Cemetery and Veterans' Park. Each November, we support veterans by donating items. We also support the Jackson Street Commons for veterans by stocking the break room with coffee supplies. The DAR Ritual is an important part of every meeting. We have maintained the Flag Pole at Foster Park in the past and intend to continue this project as well as provide flags for this pole.
Our chapter hosts two prospective member genealogy workshops annually in October and May with the Howard County Genealogy Department at the Kokomo-Howard County Library. Chapter members are active at the local, state, and national level.
