Every February 22nd, Pioneer Chapter honors our nation's First President and Founding Father, George Washington, on the anniversary of his birth. We gather at the Idaho Capitol and lay a wreath at his statute on the 4th floor.
Pioneer Chapter attends the Naturalization Ceremonies, usually held throughout the year at the Federal Courthouse, to personally congratulate and welcome each new citizen, and to present them with a flag of their new adopted country.
Pioneer Chapter Daughters love getting involved in the classroom! We gather school supplies for students, speak to classes about our patriots and the Revolutionary War, and support our elementary and secondary teachers in any way we can.
Pioneer Chapter attends the annual Memorial Day Service at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery and lays a wreath to honor our veterans. We also hand out programs at the event and assist those visitors who are looking to find where a specific person is laid to rest.
Each year, Pioneer Chapter supports the VA Medical Center and the Idaho State Veterans Home in a number of ways. Whether we are providing cookies or other tasty treats for celebrations, or we are providing manpower for events like the Veterans Olympics or Veterans Carnival, we love the chance to show Idaho's veterans how much we appreciate their service.
Did someone say genealogical records? Whether we're indexing census records, collecting and preserving family Bibles, or digitizing historical documents for the National DAR Library, Pioneer Chapter Daughters have lots of opportunities to help preserve documents and data for use by daughters and members of the general public alike!
No matter what your passion, we love pooling our unique skills and abilities to bring DAR's motto of "God, Home, and Country" to life. Join us today, and make a positive contribution to the beautiful community and state in which we live!
