In 1932, Pioneer Chapter placed this Idaho-shaped stone, along with a companion stone placed by the Sons and Daughters of Idaho Pioneers. Each commemorated Government Island, an important stop along the Oregon Trail and a place where the Army built a fort in the early history of the Boise Valley. 80-plus years later, the valley has grown up around our monument, but not in a way that allows the stone to tell its story. Thanks to the efforts of three local Rotary Chapters, our monument will get to do just that as it becomes the centerpiece of the new Rotary "Pocket Park" right along the Boise Greenbelt. Soon, the monument will be relocated to the new park, right along the Boise River and just under the Trellis Bridge. Pioneer Chapter is thrilled to be partnering with our local Rotary Clubs to make this important gift to the City of Boise...especially during the 50th Anniversary Celebration of this local treasure!
Fifth graders in Boise and Meridian receive their first exposure to DAR's favorite founding document, the United States Constitution. Their studies, however, don't include the opportunity to read the Constitution in depth, nor does it include instruction on how to care and display our beautiful American flag.
In celebration of Constitution Week and our commitment to promote civic education, this project's goal is to make constitution resources available to teachers at no cost. From this website, teachers will be able to order pocket constition copies, flags, and flag pins, as well as lesson plans to help shape discussions on the constitution and respecting our flag. Teachers will also be able to request a DAR speaker to visit their classroom to speak about our connection to the Revolutionary War!
