Lycoming Chapter, NSDAR
Welcome to the Lycoming Chapter NSDAR public web site. Our chapter is active, supporting the national objects of our society: "Historic Preservation, Promotion of Education, and Patriotism." If you are interested in attending a chapter meeting or becoming a member, please contact us. We have members who are willing to help you with your application process.
We have eight meetings per year that begin with a luncheon at noon in Williamsport; a meeting and program follows at 1:00 p.m. Our chapter participates twice a year at the U.S. Federal District Court House with a Naturalization Ceremony. We welcome these immigrants as United States Citizens with the presentation of an American Flag and refreshments. Annually in March, we present a DAR Good Citizens monetary award to a selected senior from one of the participating area high schools. This award rewards the qualities of good citizenship. The student is selected for several qualities. One is dependability, which includes truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality. Another is service, which includes cooperation, courtesy, and consideration of others. Yet another is patriotism, which includes unselfish interest in family, school, community, and nation to an outstanding degree. In May, eight American History awards are presented to the graduating senior with the highest average in American History in eight schools in the county.
Please let us know if you are interested in our service organization. We would love to invite you to one of our meetings. Please contact our Chapter Regent, Crystal Gansell-Whitcomb
