The Horseshoe Prairie Chapter of the NSDAR (National Society Daughters of the American Revolution) would like to thank the City of Noblesville and Mayor John Ditslear for the Proclamation honoring the Chapter on its 45th anniversary and naming Oct. 11 as “Horseshoe Prairie Chapter, NSDAR Day” in Noblesville. We deeply appreciate the honor and the recognition.
The Hamilton County Chapter, whose first Chapter Regent was Mrs. Judy Dillon, works to carry out the mission of the national organization. DAR members are descendants of Patriots who fought for the cause of independence of our country during the Revolutionary War. Among the many outreach initiatives of the DAR are education, historic preservation, veterans recognition and issues, genealogical research, participating in naturalization ceremonies welcoming new citizens at their oath of citizenship by presenting them with an American flag, coordinating the DAR Good Citizen Award for high school students, promoting the American History essay contest for grades 5 through 8 and high school and collecting toiletry kits and personal items needed by patients at the Veterans Administration Hospital and the Homeless Veterans Shelter.
In January, the Chapter was recognized by the U. S. Department of Defense as a Commemorative Partner in recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. The NSDAR has provided special certificates of recognition for those who served during the Vietnam War. Contact your local American Legion Post or VFW Post or email HorseshoePrairie@aol.com for more information.
The local Chapter is proud to be part of a long-standing tradition as the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2015. To learn more about DAR, I encourage readers to visit www.dar.org.
