Each year the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter recognizes a local teacher
of American history for excellence as an educator.

patriots and have written historical accounts of their ancestors.  The
combined stories of the chapter members are captured in a published 
book called "Patriot Moments: Stories of Our Ancestors".

The Mary Penrose Wayne chapter supports the six DAR Schools dedicated to
special needs students or underserved areas of the United States.  Monetary      
donations and requested  items are sent to the schools from the chapter.

      DAR Good Citizens Recognition

Each area high school is invited to nominate a student who demonstrates
leadership, dependability, service and patriotism.  The students are
recognized at a chapter ceremony, with the top student receiving a
monetary award.  The Mary Penrose Wayne award recipient represents
the chapter at the state level where he or she has an opportunity for
further recognition and the potential to earn an additional scholarship.

provide care packages for women serving in the military.
