Promotes Good Citizenship Within the Community
Good Citizen Program - Good Citizens are honored from Kennett High School, Gorham High School, and Berlin High School at the state level in April.
Patriotism Awards - Patriotism medals and certificates are awarded to a 6th grade student in the local elementary schools and to an 8th grade student at Bartlett Middle School. Anna Stickney awards two scholarships to seniors at Kennett High School: one is to a medical major and one to a history major.
We sponsor the American History essay contest for the 5th-8th graders in local schools.
We promote genealogical research and the preservation of family histories.
We recognize individuals for outstanding community service, for respecting the proper Flag code, and for other acts of valor or heroism.
We promote the conservation of forests, streams, mountains, and wetlands and the protection of New Hampshire wildlife.
We support our local libraries and we gift them with subscriptions to the award-winning DAR "American Spirit" magazine.
We support the NSDAR-approved schools through the donation of money, soup labels, and clothing, and by attending the annual school visiting days when possible. All the members collect Campbell's soup labels and turn them in, whether they are able to attend meetings or not. Canceled stamps are saved by all the members and then sent to a veterans' home where they are utilized in craft projects.
Tilton Veterans Home - We make handmade lap afghans, as well as take books, stationery, toiletries, etc. to the patients at the Tilton Veterans Home.
We promote women's issues by keeping up with the health and welfare of our members through thoughtful and proactive programs.
We strive to be supportive to one another and to observe the tenets of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in their mission statement: To promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
