Meetings and Activities

We meet September through May on the second Saturday of each month in Centennial, Colorado. Guests and prospective members are always invited and welcome to attend. Contact us for more information.

Each regular meeting consists of a social time with refreshments, patriotic exercises, discussion of business, and a program on such subjects as the Constitution, American history, women’s issues, the US military, and education. In December, we celebrate with a luncheon, complete with holiday entertainment. February is our DAR Good Citizens award ceremony, followed in the summer by a Regent’s Tea for prospective members. Many of our members attend the annual Colorado state conference and we usually have several members who attend Continental Congress, the annual national conference of the Society, in Washington, D.C. We spend social fellowship time together on field trips, historical celebrations, and adventures where we grow as sisters, Daughters, and lifelong friends.

Each year we participate in naturalization ceremonies, Flag Day ceremonies, Independence Day, recognition of Constitution Week, Veterans Day, and Revolutionary War reenactment activities. Members help at the annual VA Hospital Christmas party, as well as by contributing food, gifts, and money to programs as voted on by the chapter membership.

Columbine Chapter, NSDAR is our home chapter, but we embrace friends and Daughters in other Colorado chapters and maintain the comradery and friendships many of us have developed among NSDAR chapters nationwide. Above all else, we are Daughters of the American Revolution, honoring our rich patriotic heritage and the freedoms for which our patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

For more information about the goals of the NSDAR and membership, please visit our National Society’s website. For Information regarding Columbine Chapter, NSDAR please contact our regent, Jenifer Ghormley.
