About Our Members

What We Do

Community Service - Our members volunteer at schools, churches, and nonprofit organizations. We honor the service of our community's first responders. We support women's organizations such as SafeHouse.

Patriotism - We distribute between 500-1,000 American flags annually to spectators at the Dexter Memorial Parade.  Our local veterans appreciate our participation in their events and our support of the VA Hospital. Active military receive cards, gift cards, knit hats and scarves from our chapter. ROTC cadets receive recognition each year.

Historical Preservation - Our chapter maintains grave sites and installs historical markers. We honor the Constitution by encouraging local mayors to annually proclaim September 17-23 as Constitution Week. We transcribe Revolutionary War documents for the University of Michigan Clements Library.

Education - We sponsor an essay contest for local high school students on the topic of good citizenship. Our chapter also supports four DAR schools nationally.
