Community Service

On our National DAR Day of Service DAR members all over the world celebrate the anniversary of the October 11, 1890, founding of the DAR by participating in special volunteer service projects in our communities. The Ninian Edwards Chapter NSDAR cleaned landscaping beds at the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site.
