EDUCATION:

Whether enjoying an informative speaker at a monthly meeting, or becoming involved working with local schools, or through other community outreach programs, education is key to DAR's success not only in Colorado, but from sea-to-shining-sea.

This short video explores a few ways the NSDAR is making a difference through education.
Below: Blue Spruce is an active chapter whose good works help many throughout the community. Below is an example of recent press coverage of a successful grant we were able to obtain via the Colorado State Society for the benefit of Lakewood Heritage Center's Traveling Trunks program.
Web hyperlinks to non-DAR sites are not the responsibility of the NSDAR, the state organizations, or individual DAR chapters.
