We also encourage good citizenship by presenting awards to one representative Senior from each high school in the area who best demonstrates the qualities of a good citizen, dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.

The chapter contributes to numerous DAR scholarship funds.

The chapter is involved in remembering and contacting our veteran patients who are residents in local facilities as well as the Indiana State Veterans Home in Marion, Indiana.

We attend all naturalization ceremonies and personally congratulate each candidate for citizenship. Flag code pamphlets which describe the correct usage and display of the American flag are presented to each candidate courtesy of the chapter.

The chapter also actively supports preserving the history and marking historic sites of the area.
