In addition to service, members attend the meetings and activities that we organize. Participating in state and national level events and service projects, magnifies our efforts. For example we were able to obtain matching grant funds from National DAR to fund the Darlington Area Veteran’s Memorial. And we sent linens for soldiers returning from the Middle East within a Wisconsin DAR project. We conduct a DAR Good Citizens program each year and select an essay winner from the entries using three impartial judges. The winner’s essay is entered in the state level competition. For more about what we do see the Activities page.
