Announcement: National DAR Day of Service

A huge thank you to all California Daughters for continuing to log Service to America hours in the online tally. Keep up the great work!! California’s goal for 2019 is 340,000 hours. President General Denise Doring VanBuren has set the national goal for the next three years at 10 million hours. Remember that every hour spent volunteering makes a difference in our local communities and DAR.

Please share photos and stories of all the great work and amazing events that your chapters are doing. You can email: You can follow us on Facebook, too! There is a public Facebook page that features photos and stories and a members-only Facebook page to exchange ideas, ask questions, and connect with fellow DAR members.
