Columbine is a very active chapter. These are a few of our projects:

- We ensure that local cities recognize Constitution Day September 17 by providing proclamations to be read at city council meetings
- We present a JROTC Medal to an outstanding JROTC student annually
- We participate in Naturalization Ceremonies where we congratulate new citizens.
- We placed a marker for victims of the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu Pandemic at Fairmount Cemetery and also obtained a grant for saving the grave of Emily Griffith, historic Denver educator

- We participated in DAR Day of Service by baking cookies for police in Lone Tree, Greenwood Village, and Highlands Ranch

Columbine Chapter is our home chapter, but we embrace friends and Daughters in other Colorado chapters and maintain the camaraderie 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.
