Chapter Activities and Projects

The El Dorado Chapter proudly engages in many local activities in the spirit of the DAR mission. In addition to supporting DAR sponsored schools, we promote patriotism by supporting our Veterans and soldiers overseas, sponsor literacy programs in local schools; recognize community volunteers who have rendered outstanding services in our community, and support many other endeavors that promote pride in our American heritage.
