DAR Good Citizens Program
Sierra Amador Chapter is happy to sponsor the DAR Good Citizens Award which is open to all high school seniors who show the qualities of good citizenship such as dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. Winners each year are honored at a Tea where they are given a DAR Good Citizen pin and Certificate. Those who participate in the scholarship essay are also eligible for monetary awards.
DAR Schools and American Indian Schools
Sierra Amador Chapter collects the Campbell Labels for Education and Boxtops for Education which help to support six DAR Schools throughout the United States: The Kate Duncan Smith DAR School in Alabama; Tamassee DAR School in South Carolina; Berry College in Georgia; Crossnore School in North Carolina; Hillside School in Massachusetts; and Hindman Settlement School in Kentucky.
Labels and proofs of purchase from more than 1,000 Campbell products are eligible for redemption in Campbell's Labels for Education Program. A wide veriety of products carry the Boxtop for Educations as well. We urge everyone to take advantage of these wonderful corporate programs to support these schools and other schools through the country.
To celebrate our Constitution, the safeguard of our liberties, the Sierra Amador Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution encouraged awareness of the Constitution by hanging posters in the Amador County Library proclaiming the date and event visible from the entry to the library. We wish all to be reminded of the safeguards to our liberty through the Consitution of the United States of America.
As Daughters we are concerned with availability of information about, respect for and knowledge of the Constitution in our community and wish to implement and encourage interest in the Constitution. Our program each September reflects some aspect of the US Constitution.
The United States 50-star flag – 1960
After Alaska and then Hawaii joined the Union, a new design and arrangement of stars were required in the union of the flag. In the order issued by President Eisenhower, August 21, 1959, the national banner with fifty stars became the official flag of the United States. President Eisenhower issued an attachment to the order specifying the position of the stars in the union and setting forth the dimensions and proportions of the constituent parts of the flag.
The American Flag may be flown at any time, weather permitting, day or night, if properly illuminated after dark.
Sierra Amador Chapter contributes to the DAR's Project Patriot. We send packages to service men and women on the front lines. We also contribute to Project Wounded Warrier, providing items for those recovering from war related injuries at local and national military hospitals.
Items are brought to each chapter meeting to be packaged and mailed to in support of our men and women fighting the war against terrorism.
