From the time of the Daughters of the American Revolution's inception in 1890, a love of country and patriotic spirit has united its members and formed the central purpose for our coming together in sisterhood. Sharing the common bond of ancestors who fought for American freedom, our DAR forebearers united to honor their brave patriot ancestors and the legacy they created. Honoring our patriots, our military, and our nation as a whole is at the heart of our activities as an organization, and we at the Ketewamoke Chapter NSDAR are proud to be working within our own community to exemplify those central tenets of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
DAR Day of Service
Every year, as part of their commitment to honoring our nation and working together for love of country, the members of the NSDAR participate in the DAR Day of Service.
On October 11, 2018, members of the Ketewamoke Chapter NSDAR chose to devote their Day of Service to honoring patriots. In spite of the rainy weather, the members were in cheerful spirits as they spent the morning cleaning the graves of patriots at the Soldiers and Sailors Cemetery in Huntington, New York.
Using a specially-formulated biological cleaner designed to be gentle on the historic stones, the members took great pleasure in seeing the patriot's graves more clearly revealed from beneath dirt and grime. Member, Theresa, was delighted to discover her own great-grandparents' graves amongst those of the soldiers and sailors.
The Ketewamoke Chapter NSDAR looks forward to future Days of Service and the opportunity to work in support of the country they love, and our chapter remains dedicated to honoring their patriot ancestors' legacies and preserving their memories.
