Thank you for your enthusiasm and support for the National DAR Day of Service throughout October! There was an outstanding response in the Service to America Committee DAR members-only Facebook group with more than 360 member posts describing service projects, many of which included photos. They featured a service project every day in October on the Service to America public Facebook page. Mrs. VanBuren published a wonderful post on the DAR Blog about the National DAR Day of Service (see link below). Thank you all for SHINING and spreading the word about DAR Service to America!
