"National DAR Day of Service. On October 11, 2015, the 125th anniversary of our founding, chapters from coast to coast are encouraged to complete special service projects within their local communities, as we unite to demonstrate the combined impact of our DAR mission. The National DAR Day of Service will be a chance to join together in a nationwide effort to illustrate our National Society’s collective commitment to America."
