Chapter Activities

 

 

The chapter meets for lunch once each month, September through May, on the third Wednesday of each month at noon in Carson City.  The one-hour meetings include both chapter business and an educational program.  Though the educational programs take a summer hiatus, we still meet for lunch each third Wednesday during the months of June, July, and August.  For meeting location, please contact the Chapter Regent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a 'young' chapter, organized in 2004, chapter members are already making strides to promote DAR programs and ideals in our community.

For six years, the chapter sponsored an annual holiday wreath laying ceremony honoring veterans and active duty military. At the last ceremony held on December 3, 2012, we were pleased to have Governor Brian Sandoval lay the wreath.

Chapter members actively promote DAR youth contests in our community. In 2012 our chapter sponsored the state winner in the American History Essay Contest in the 8th grade. Our chapter also sponsored the 2005 state winners of the American History Essay Contest in the 6th and 8th grades, the 2008 state winner at the 8th grade level, the 2010 winners at the 6th and 7th grade level, and the 2011 winner at the 7th grade level. Our 2010 7th grade winner also won the Southwest Division contest.

in 2016, our DAR Good Citizen winner from Carson High School was named the Nevada State DAR Good Citizen. We also presented NJROTC Medals of Honor to two officers in the Carson High School Naval JROTC program.

We have an active Junior American Citizen (JAC) Club program. Our clubs regularly produce state and Southwest Division winners and national finalists in JAC competitions including both community service projects and art contests. In 2017, our 3rd grade postage stamp design winner won 3rd place in the national competition. In 2012 our 8th grade photo essay contest winner also won national first place. In 2010 our 6th grade photo essay winner won first place in the national competition, and we had other entries receive national recognition including banner entries at the Pre-K and 7th grade levels.

Our chapter is also a proud sponsor of the Fort Churchill Society, Children of the American Revolution.

Battle Born Chapter strongly supports Americanism and Constitution Week activities, and participates in several community events throughout the year in related activities. In 2012 and 2011 we participated in the PACT Walk for the Constitution. In September 2010 the Chapter sponsored a month-long display in the Carson City Mall "kid's corner" relating to Constitution Week and Americanism. Efforts to get the DAR message out into the community have resulted in several publicity awards, including winning the Nevada State Society Travelling Publicity Trophy in 2008 and 2009, as well as the Southwest DIvision Award for Outstanding PR in 2008.

Members are very involved in literacy efforts in Carson City.  Our many volunteer literacy hours resulting in a First Place win in the Literacy Challenge contest at the Nevada State Society DAR state conference in March, 2006.
