Regent Joyce Wright and Corresponding Secretary Kathy Casey represented our Signal Hill DAR Chapter. The Northwest Territory Alliance held a Revolutionary War encampment and battle demonstration at Cantigny War Museum, in Winfield, IL.
We collect comfort items for donation to VA hospitals and for VA Stand Down for homeless veterans; we support Honor Flight Chicago with monetary donations and Thank You notes for the veteran mail call; we are a Commemorative Partner with Vietnam War Veterans.
Active US troops are not forgotten – we assist at “No Dough” dinners through the USO for Navy personnel at Great Lakes Naval Station and contribute and assemble packages for deployed troops.
We support veterans through the Honor Flight Chicago program with monetary donations and volunteer time. Honor Flight sends veterans to Washington D.C. at no cost to them to view the memorial erected in their honor.
DAR Project Patriot
We support active American service personnel through the Daughters of the American Revolution Project Patriot Committee. The Signal Hill Chapter NSDAR collects and ships basic needs items requested by our soldiers, knits helmet liners, and sends long distance calling cards to our hospitalized service personnel in Landstuhl, Germany.
Signal Hill Chapter NSDAR participates in the Independence Day Parade, in Barrington. Honored veterans, our youth award winners, and several chapter members and their children and grandchildren, march alongside our decorated floats and cars. We distribute approximately 6,000 pieces of American made flag-wrapped candy each year. A great deal of fun is had by all!
