Vice Regent Lesley Baran has announced that Gila Butte Daughters reported 2,500 volunteer hours during DAR’s 125th year. The tally of volunteer hours is a current Celebrate America! project of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

During this historic time, Daughters around the world have united to demonstrate the combined impact of DAR’s mission within the community and the nation. Since its founding, nearly one million members have fulfilled the organization’s mission to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism, and currently Daughters are celebrating both their founding and their future by providing 12.5 million hours of meaningful volunteer service to America.

Meaningful volunteer service is defined as activities benefitting those outside of the chapter and the national DAR organization. Service must be an outward demonstration of community volunteerism to be acceptable and does not include the ongoing, established work of the DAR.

Gila Butte volunteer activities extend through a variety of community services, including tutoring and mentoring; serving in community care agencies; and presenting community events. Gila Butte meets in Sun Lakes and welcomes eligible women who want to serve their community and nation in DAR.
